GitHub Mac app keeps adding SSH keys?

My GitHub app seems to be adding new SSH keys to github every time I boot up my machine and startup GitHub app. This seems to me like that is not the way it was designed. Is there anyone with the same problem? Could it maybe be because of our changing IP address? (we’ve got […]

Git Autocompletion looks weird (and only half-functional)

Following these excellent instructions for enabling Git bash autocompletion in OSX: curl https://raw.github.com/git/git/master/contrib/completion/git-completion.bash -o ~/.git-completion.bash echo “source ~/.git-completion.bash” >> ~/.bash_profile I get the following output when I type “git TabTab” at the command line: Following multiple different tutorials produces the same result.

What graphical git tool for Mac can show per-file history better than github?

I want a nice graphical version of git log -p some/file.rb on my Mac.

I can’t find anything in GitNub or […]

How do I use Github to access the same project files from different computers?
