Are you tired of git always pestering you about your password in one of your 100 repositories cloned into your system? Even worse, do you have multiple git accounts and it's just absolutely maddening?
No longer do you have to search for "git permanently store password" or "git credential helper cache infinite timeout"!
There's a solution to this maddening behaviour:
Just edit your
.git/config and your troubles are over, no more stupid behaviour:
[user] name = Username email = Email password = Password [credential] helper = cache
And git just becomes usable.
P.S: You might get:
$ git fetch remote: Repository not found. fatal: repository 'https://github.com/TaaviE/Gadgetbridge.git/' not found
~/.git-credentials, git can't handle storing passwords for multiple accounts properly :')
