How to set a default username for HTTPS git push?
I want to push to my remote repo, which is hosted on github, using HTTPS. No, I don’t want to use SSH or any other protocol so please don’t suggest that.
Now, I know you can specify a default username in the remote itself, like so:
- Should you ignore .obj files when pushing to git repo?
- Github commit message escape “@” character
- git push interrupted while sending big files
- Is there a way to identify lines been deleted by a commit via API in github
- cannot access a git branch from a different computer
- How can I sync documentation with Github Pages?
git remote add origin https://[Username]@github.com/[OrgName]/[RepoName].git

OK, git credentials can do this. Adding this to my git config fixed the problem:
[credential "https://github.com"] username = (MyUsername)
Note that git credentials is a relatively new feature in git, released in 1.7.9 or something, so it won’t work in older versions.
