git-profile Utility that helps you switch git configurations with ease
It is possible that you have multiple git configurations. For example:
; Office Profile Name: John Doe Email: [email protected] ; Personal Profile Name: John Doe Email: [email protected]
It could be a hassle to remember and switch between the profiles while working on different projects.
This utility aims to make this hassle free.
- Create and manage profiles globally; create once, use anywhere
- Set profile for a specific project
- Set global profile with a single command
This utility helps you save profiles and then you can switch between them using a single command.
$ composer global require zeeshan/git-profile
Then check your
$PATH variable. It must contain
$ echo $PATH /usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/home/username/.composer/vendor/bin
.bashrc files if your
$PATH variable not contain composer/bin dir.
Also you can use .phar file

$ git-profile current [+] Current Profile "Office" [+] Name: John Doe [+] Email: [email protected] [+] Signingkey: 547ABB1C
Side note It should be noted that profiles are maintained globally. When you
use some profile locally, what it does is get the configuration for that profile and sets it for the current project. i.e. when
use is run locally it is equivalent to
$ git config user.name "Name for specified profile" $ git config user.email "[email protected]" $ git config user.signingkey "SIGNINGKEY"
$ git-profile list Available profiles: Github Home Office
