How can I setup my .git/config to be able to push to / pull from multiple remote repositories?

Ok, I have three different computers that I work from and right now their configurations are all different so I have to push/pull a certain on each and its very bothersome. What I want to do is have ONE config file that I can use for all three that will allow me to do the following:

git push unfuddle
git pull heroku
git push unfuddle
git pull heroku

And I’m new to git, so I know that maybe I need heroku master or ‘heroku origin` or somethign?

  • Git - Remove in between commit
  • Go, go get, go install, local packages, and version control
  • Git undo last commit
  • Google App Engine and Git best practices
  • Simultaneously git add -p and git checkout -p
  • Git merge strategy for maven project hotfix releases with multiple branches
  • Here is what my config file looks like right now:

        repositoryformatversion = 0
        filemode = true
        bare = false
        logallrefupdates = true
    [remote "origin"]
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
        url =
    [branch "master"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/master
    [remote "unfuddle"]
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
        url =

    Obviously the git urls were changed to protect the innocent. What should I change so that I can easily push and pull to/from both of these repos?

    First of all, there are three levels of config files:

    • config local to your current repo
    • config local to your current user (home directory)
    • config local to your system

    You can define as many remote repo addresses you want, and you can do it at the user level, provided you synchronize that config file from destop to destop

    git remote add origin1 git+ssh://remote.location/git/repository1.git
    git remote add origin2 git+ssh://remote.location/git/repository2.git
    git remote add origin3 git+ssh://remote.location/git/repository3.git

    If those commands add the remote addresses only in your current repo config file, you can manually move those to your current user config file.

    But on each repo, you need to define your remote tracking branch for the right repo:

    git branch --set-upstream master origin1/master

    (from Git1.7.0, quicker than the two git config branch you had to do before)

    So if you have the right synchronization mechanism (like dropbox for instance) for your user config file, you are all set.
