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 Mac 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 Mac 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 Mac. Is it the folder for my local repositories (that are synced through GitHub Desktop) or something else?
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 variables.
I don’t have a clue where to find my gitconfig file. Again, this is probably pretty obvious, just not to me. Please could someone point me to that?
