How to use Mac KeyChain to store GitHub repos credentials?
You know the pain, you cloned a repo over HTTPS, and now Git asks you for your password each time you want to push or pull.
Chances are you already have the
git credential-osxkeychain command installed. If not, just install Git with brew:
brew install git.
Once installed, just tell Git to use the KeyChain to store your credentials:
git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain
Next time you clone a repo via HTTPS, you’ll be prompt for granting access to KeyChain. That’s it. Any future authentication will be done transparently by Git reading the KeyChain record.
