configuring the GIT account basically - with SSH and so on

Posted 30 November 2018 - 07:16 AM

hello dear friends, hope you are fine and all goes well at your site.

i am just in the mid of configuring the GIT account basically - with SSH and so on


well i just have started with ATOM and now i want to connect to GITHUB: i have found out that git-plus an support my needs and ideas alot.


I have a or git-specific question, like where to find gitconfig, I find this site to be the most helpful. [ https://git-scm.com/...it-config#FILES ]

my tasks for the weekend: I would like to configure Atom to connect to my GitHub repositories. I have installed the git-plus package and went through the process of creating
an SSH key on my Win and adding my public key to my GitHub account. I am pretty new to this stuff so I am confused by what may simple issues for more experienced people. I’d appreciate some help!


Issue 1: Pointing git-plus to my local repositories


I have GitHub Desktop installed on my Windows-machine and it is connected to my repositories online.
git-plus has a setting for the “Git Path” but I’m really not sure where that is on my Windows-machine.
Is it the folder for my local repositories (that are synced through GitHub Desktop) or something else?
By the way: i also intend to install Git-Path on my linux machine - of course!!! This is planned at the next month!


Issue 2: Editing gitconfig


The git-plus instructions include this: Make sure your gitconfig file is configured. You must configure at least the user.email and user.name 2 variables.
I don’t have a clue where to find my gitconfig file.

Again, this is very very probably pretty obvious, just not to me. Please could someone point me to that?


btw: Found those pages:


https://atom.io/packages/git-plus
for git-specific questions, like where to find gitconfig , I find this site to be the most helpful.

hello dear


heard about gitkraken

the question is - does gitrkraken integrate in Atom:

i did a quick search - to find out if this is true:

gitkraken - Atom

and i have found a little how-to
http://olio.dk/blog/...-teamwork-tools
Install teamwork tools: Git, GitKraken and Atom code editor

Introduction
If you are the first in your team, then create the Git repository and share it with the other team members, otherwise just skip to install Git for Windows and install the Git command line tools and Git graphical tool GitKraken. The Atom code editor is a modern text editor with many extensions for Docker file syntax highlighting, PowerSheel shortcuts and much more. After following the steps below, read how to install Docker for Windows.

install gitkraken
Many developers prefer using git command line interface (CLI) tools, but for bigger projects a graphical user interface like GitKraken has many advantages. Download and install GitKraken and create a GitKraken account in the process.

Install atom editor
For editing code a modern code editor like Atom is a great choice.
Download and install Atom from https://atom.io


toogle git tab in atom editor
Under packages, GitHub there is a menu to Toogle Git tab.


install atom packages
Under the “File”, “Settings” menu, you can choose “Install” to search for new packages that extent the Atom editor, like “language-docker” for Docker syntax highlighting.


Create desktop shortcuts
command prompt shortcut
You can also just create a shortcut on the Windows desktop to:

powershell shortcut
If you prefer using the more advanced sheel and scripting environment PowerSheel, then create a shortcut on the Windows desktop to:

the question is - does gitkraken integrate into ATOM?

todays question is about the getting started with GITHUB integration in atom-editor on a linux notebook


just installed git-plus in the atom editor on my linux-notebook.

well i have a github - account and i have installed Atom on my Linux-Notebook:;

now i want to go ahead:
how to do the setup so that Atom is combined with my github-Account?
should i use this - /(seen in the git-plus)

IMPORTANT

Quote

:Make sure your gitconfig file is configured. You must configure at least the user.email and user.name variables.
Also, the package currently favors an ssh setup that doesn't expect to be prompted for credentials in order to push/pull, .etc. Github has a guide to help you set that up here: If you are on a Windows machine, I recommend checking out this thread if you have issues pushing/pulling from a remote repository with this package. I also don't have the means to do my own user testing in a windows environment so I won't be immediately able to help troubleshoot windows problems.


Showing the Git-Plus Palette

Quote

Cmd-Shift-H on MacOS
Ctrl-Shift-H on Windows + Linux
Git Plus: Menu on the atom command palette.


btw: whats the differenc between the following options

- open the git panel
- open the github-panel

Above all: i want to get started with Github - and want to combine the Atom-editor with Github.

According to Atom - github packages are already installed when Atom is installed.
