Getting started with GITHUB integration in atom-editor on a linux notebook


#1

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. [/QUOTE]

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.
[/QUOTE]

btw: whats the difference 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.

Have you done this? Open your ~/.gitconfig file. Does it say something like this?

[user]
	email = myemail@gmail.com
	name = DamnedScholar

If it doesn’t, you should add those. GitHub has help documentation about how to do it on the command line. The first time you make a commit to your GitHub account, GitHub should ask you for your password. Thereafter, git will safely store your password and you won’t have to sign in again on that computer.

The Git tab shows you the files you have in your repository that will be affected the next time you make a commit, and lets you add a message and make the commit. The GitHub tab shows you pull requests (commonly called PRs) that other people have made to your repository, which will become important if you’re ever the administrator of a project being worked on by multiple people.
