Cloning and update your project to github

You could automate the process of pushing modifications to github, then you won’t need to enter your user and password all the time.

This guy at http://amaras-tech.co.uk/article/159/Using_Github_behind_a_restrictive_firewall almost get there, he edited the .git/config and add:

url = https://morganp@github.com/morganp/maruku_snippet.git

And put this statement: “Entering your password will still be required.”

But don’t worry, fortunately he is wrong, you could just use:

url = https://morganp:yourpassword@github.com/morganp/maruku_snippet.git

Note: putting your password at .git/config is very unsecure, then you should at least change this file permission in order to avoid other user sharing your computer has access to it:

$ chmod 600 .git/config
