I was sure I had already made a post on this subject for my own reference but as it seems I haven’t here it goes.

I’m not a great fan of passwords as I’ve got about three million or some such at this point so if there’s a way of not having to enter them every time I’m all for it.

I’m using windows, I’m a complete git n00b and this might be ever so basic for someone else but for those who like me, aren’t too fond of wading through git documentation..

Here is how you store/save/reuse your git credentials, simply:

git config credential.helper store

And you’ll only have to input your credentials the next time you push.

This is per folder/repository, if you want for the entire system just use:

git config --global credential.helper store

Cheerio (still working on that catchphrase)
