configure git on personal linux box

Developers , those want to use git can map linux virtual machine to github. In this way dev can port the code to github. Its easy to maintain the repository as well.

  1. Create a account on github.com
  2. After creating the account ,create a repository for yourself.
  3. SSH to your linux box and generate rsa key
    • ssh-keygen -t rsa -C “<emailid>
      copy the public key from .ssh/<>.pub to git
  4. Copy the public key to github
    • git3
  5. Commands to add file to new repository
    • git config –global user.email “<email id>”

      git clone git@github.com:<username>/mycode.git
      Cloning into ‘mycode’…

      root [ ~ ]# cd mycode
      root [ ~/mycode ]# git add README.md
      root [ ~/mycode ]# git commit -m “add README.md”
      On branch master
