Git Command Line Snippets: Update Name and Email

GitHubThis post is part of the series on Git Command Line Snippets where I am taking a look at performing actions on GitHub using the git command line.

Before you start using Git you need to enter your credentials to identify yourself as the author. The name and email address should both be set to the same as the ones you use in GitHub.

To set your username you can use this command:

git config --global "azurecurve"

To set your email address you can use this command:

git config --global ""

What should we write about next?
