I hate re-entering the password when pushing to Github!

Workaround: SSH connection!

  • 1 Create an SSH key in your local terminal

ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "yourgithubemail@gmail.com"
ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "yshmarov@gmail.com"

You don’t have to type in a password. Just press Enter

1 generate ssh

  • 2 Start ssh agent, “Use” the generated key (in my case id_ed25519):

eval `ssh-agent -s`
ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_ed25519.pub

2 use generated ssh key

  • 3 Open the key file

3 open generated ssh key

  • 4 Copy everything from the file

4 copy generated ssh

5 paste ssh to github

  • 6 Check if you are connected to github. Console:

ssh -T git@github.com

6 check connection

  • 7 Connect to remote repo via SSH

Type git remote -v

If you’re updating to use HTTPS, your URL might look like:

https://[github]/USERNAME/REPOSITORY.git

If you’re updating to use SSH, your URL might look like:

git@github.com:USERNAME/REPOSITORY.git

To switch remote URLs from HTTPS to SSH type:

git remote set-url origin git@github.com:USERNAME/REPOSITORY.git
git remote set-url origin git@github.com:yshmarov/REPOSITORY.git

When creating a remote, make sure you “clone with SSH” instead of “clone with HTTPS”.

That’s it! Next time you git push anything, it should authenticate automatically, and you’ll not have to enter your credentials on C9 again.
