It seems you are no longer cool unless you are using Git and Github, so I decided I’d give it a shot with Esenterate. I found Git for Windows Developers to be extremely useful, and I highly recommend reading it if you are thinking about using Git.
Everything was fairly straight forward except for one small detail: I wanted to use Git from both my laptop and my desktop. I generated my public/private key pair on my laptop, then copied it to my desktop, but I wasn’t sure how to associate the pair with my user in gitbash. (yes, I realize that the solution is probably obvious to all you *nix peeps out there; go back to editing your 10,000 config files, please. *smiles*) Without this key correctly associated to your account, you won’t be able to push to Github. After some Googling, I discovered the ssh-add command. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it to work. I kept getting Could not open a connection to your authentication agent errors. After even more Googling, I found the solution: you need to start ssh-agent, then execute the ssh-add command, like so:
exec ssh-agent bash
If everything goes according to plan, you should see a success message like Identity added: id_rsa (id_rsa). You should now be all set to push to Github!
Thanks for posting this article. I’m definitely tired of struggling to search out relevant and intelligent commentary on this subject. Everyone nowadays goes to the terribly far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either 1) everyone else in the world is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not "really perceive" the situation. Thank you for your consise, relevant insight.
Could you pleasee provide more information on this subject??? BTW your blog is superb. Best regards.

Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to express my thanks. I’ve been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a lot of fine information as well as enjoyed the way you’ve structured your site. I’m trying to run my very own blog however I think its too general and I need to focus more on smaller topics. Being all things to all people is not all that its cracked up to be 🙂
