Configuring the ATOM-GIT account basically - with SSH and so on

git

#1

hello dear manjaro-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/docs/git-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:

What does this have to do with Manjaro? It sounds like you’re using Atom on a Windows installation.

Moved to Technical Issues and Assistance: Applications.


#3

There is a GitHub plugin for Atom which uses an API key to access your GitHub account.

Just use that.

Also, if you’re wanting help with an Atom plugin running under Windows this really isn’t the place to get help.


Moved further to #technical-issues-and-assistance:third-party-applications as this is about configuring a third-party plugin, not the application itself. Also if it’s on Windows it’s not even in the Manjaro repos.

dear Manjaro-experts,

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

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

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.

Given you are specifically using GitHub, what’s wrong with https://github.atom.io/ ?

It even has extensive documentation: https://flight-manual.atom.io/using-atom/sections/github-package/

connecting atom/ on linux with GIT and github,
See here; heard that this would be but very simple from the command line and linux…
Set your email: https://help.github.com/articles/setting-your-commit-email-address-in-git/

After uploading keys, test your ssh connection: https://help.github.com/articles/testing-your-ssh-connection/

Switch repo to use ssh rather than https: https://help.github.com/articles/changing-a-remote-s-url/#switching-remote-urls-from-https-to-ssh

but if i look at my atom editor i have the options of

  • connect with GIT
  • connect with GITHub

well whats the difference here between git and github!?
why cannot add some commits while i see the git with create detached commend - nothing happens here.

Please stop posting multiple threads about the same thing.

Git is the version control system.

GitHub is one online git repository hosting service.

In terms of the Atom plugins, the “GitHub” plugin will specifically use the GitHub plugin which communicates with GitHub, and the the “Git” plugin will use a local Git repository.

If you want help with these third-party plugins you really need to ask their authors.
