 I'm on Windows 10 running Atom Latest. The Push command does not work - I have to manually open the command line and run git push in the correct folder to have it run properly. There's also another git-based Atom plugin that's having the same issue of not being able to push on Windows, because of shelljs (jacogr/atom-git-control#61). Is there a way to fix this?

### GaetanBt commented Jul 3, 2015

 Same problem here with windows 7 and latest Atom version

### Japskua commented Jul 10, 2015

 Agreed, same thing.

### rwestonbutler commented Jul 12, 2015

 Same issue here with windows 7, atom 1.0.2. Looks like it tries to open some window at the bottom of the editor, but it is blank:

### GaetanBt commented Jul 16, 2015

 Just tried with my Mac on Yosemite (Osx 10.10.2) and Atom 1.0.2 and it works perfectly

### Japskua commented Jul 16, 2015

 The problem is on Windows, not Mac...

### fprieur commented Aug 6, 2015

 Same here on win7 64

 Previous users have had this issue. I'm not familiar with windows but for them it was resolved after cleaning up environment variables and ssh keys.

### joncombe commented Aug 17, 2015

 Maybe this will help others with the same issue on Windows authenticating using an SSH key. On Windows I've always used Pagent (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) to handle my SSH Keys. For some reason (I don't know why), these keys appear to be ignored when using git on Windows, hence the push fails. To get round this, generate a new SSH key in using OpenSSH (these instructions look good: http://guides.beanstalkapp.com/version-control/git-on-windows.html#installing-ssh-keys) and copy the public key to GitHub in the usual way. Finally, test "git clone" / "git push" works using the command line (as you'll see descriptive errors if there is a problem) and if that works, then try using git-plus in Atom. Worked for me.

 My experience is that this is related to ssh keys, yes.

### Oliver84 commented Sep 4, 2015

 I'm having the same issue on Ubuntu. Git push works fine in the terminal, but not on Atom.

### Oliver84 commented Sep 5, 2015

 I'm not sure if my issue is related to everyone else's here but mine was giving me an error regarding askpass. I installed it with the command below and it's now working. sudo apt-get install ssh-askpass

 I had the same issue on Windows 8.1 - everything worked except push. For me the issue was related to credentials (I had to insert the credentials from the cmd for each push), might help someone else too: First - the obvious, you must have git in your environment variables: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4492979/git-is-not-recognized-as-an-internal-or-external-command Install the Microsoft credential manager https://github.com/Microsoft/Git-Credential-Manager-for-Windows Make one push from git bash to enter your credentials and restart atom and command prompt. It should remember your credentials and the push from Atom git plus should work.

 I had the same problem, fixed environment variables, using Pageant and GIT_SSH for plink, but still didn't work, then eventually it did. I think if you can manage to push from the regular cmd command line, Atom should be able to push too. After you make any environmental changes, use Task Manager to ensure all instances of the application under test (cmd, Atom, etc.) are killed and restarted. If in doubt, restart your computer (the Windows solution).

### DollarAkshay commented Dec 24, 2015

 @ehasanbegovic Thank you Sir. Your comment helped me. Its working now. Just had to add the path variable

### blooski commented Apr 27, 2016

 Adding the Credential Manager did the trick. Thanks. (Atom on Win7 64)

### kishorramanan commented Nov 2, 2016

 Had to do all things combined Check Git path or set to default if you are able to access in cmd Install Git Wincred [https://github.com/Microsoft/Git-Credential-Manager-for-Windows] Do a manual push from windows cmd not Git bash Add wincred to git credential [https://help.github.com/articles/caching-your-github-password-in-git/]

 There is another issue related to pushing on windows machines at #413. The solution posted there is: In order to have the PUSH working, you need to add the GitHub.exe (not git.exe) path to Environment Variable PATH and restart Atom. This is how I found GitHub.exe path (in Windows) Run GitHub desktop Open the Task Manager, right click on GitHub (32 bit) process and select Open File Location In my case GitHub.exe was in the folder C:\Users\cassani\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\H35QN991.JQW\RZJQ033T.E6B\gith..tion_317444273a93ac29_0003.0000_eb093b9833279bd4\

### lleiou commented Jan 25, 2017

 But I have the same problem on Mac, is there any related solutions? Thanks a lot.

### akonwi commented Jan 26, 2017

 @lleiou Do you have git configured to push using ssh without credentials?

### navanjr commented Jan 26, 2017

 FWIW, I had the same issue, until I realized I was running an older version of Atom. Updated to 1.13.1 and it works now.

### lleiou commented Feb 1, 2017

 @akonwi Yes I think I used SSH to push, do I need to extra step to set up the credentials???

### lleiou commented Feb 1, 2017

 @akonwi Thank you for your words, I finally made it! I will write down my solution here tomorrow!

### lleiou commented Feb 1, 2017

 @akonwi I find that although I have added the key to the ssh-agent within the terminal, I have to add it again under Atom...That's how I fixed my strange problem......

### ror6ax commented Feb 14, 2017

 Just chiming in that Credential Manager solves the issue. 👍

### genghisun commented Apr 26, 2017

 @lleiou seems like you have fixed that problem, could you tell me how to "add it again under Atom"?

### lleiou commented Apr 26, 2017 • edited Edited 1 time lleiou edited Apr 26, 2017 (most recent)

 @genghisun Well this doesn't seem a perfect solution, but you can give it a try: Assume you have "Open-terminal-here" package installed, open the terminal under one of your project, and type ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa, then you will be prompted to input password, and git plus will work again... So every time git plus doesn't work, repeat the procedure above and it will be back to normal....👀 (at least on my Mac)

### sum01 commented May 4, 2017

 Having the same problem. Confirmed that I can push via SSH with the terminal, but not while in Atom with git-plus.

### kishorramanan commented May 4, 2017

 @sum01 Have you created a SSH config file?

### ror6ax commented May 4, 2017

 A bigger problem here, as far as I am concerned, is silent failure. If you push, plugin works as if it actually happens for me, But it does not happen. :(

### sum01 commented May 4, 2017

 @kishorramanan Yes, although I'm honestly not sure if it's correct. Host github.com HostName github.com User sum01 PreferredAuthentications publickey IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub  at the file path ~/.ssh/ssh_config

### kishorramanan commented May 4, 2017 • edited Edited 1 time kishorramanan edited May 4, 2017 (most recent)

 @sum01 if you are the single user you need not specify user and PreferredAuthentications below is my config file for windows 10 Host stash.company.com IdentityFile C:\Users\mysusername\.ssh\id_rsa Host github.com IdentityFile C:\Users\mysusername\.ssh\git_hub  make a git pull/push from bash once before you try it in atom @ror6ax I had the similar problem, git credential manger also didn't help. SSH and the above config solved the issue.

### sum01 commented May 4, 2017

 @kishorramanan Didn't fix it. I got the little green popup on Atom showing it pushed, but opening the error bin thing (clicking git+ in the bottom-right) shows the same error as before. I still have bash open from doing a pull on the repo, which worked fine (verified by browsing around in the files that got pulled). Side-note: Only the master branch is being detected in Atom. In reality, I have 3 branches, but the other 2 don't show up at all. This seems to be related to a different issue though.

### kishorramanan commented May 5, 2017

 @sum01 try updating GIT for the PUSH issue. as for branch, you can checkout each branch separately either in atom or in git bash, then try it from atom icon.

### sum01 commented May 5, 2017

 @kishorramanan I'm already running Git 2.12.2-4, Atom 1.16.0-1, and git-plus 7.8.0 on Linux 4.10.13-1-ARCH. There's nothing to update to, barring dev repo's. But anyways, I'm still not really sure what else I can do to get git-plus to be able to push. When that green box comes up saying "push successful" or whatever it says, git-plus seems to think it actually pushed files, as the once-orange (aka files with diff's) files get their colors changed back to normal. But then I open the git+ log and it shows the same ssh_askpass error in the image I posted before.

 @ror6ax Yeah +100. If this failed loudly it would be much easier to figure out a fix. Primary issue here is definitely the silent failure.

 Same here with Windows 10

### kadomcevi commented Sep 28, 2017

 "ssh_askpass" issue under Linux related to package ssh_askpass which should be installed, because git-plus ask password using this command. For Gentoo linux exist at least 3 working packages: lxqt-base/lxqt-openssh-askpass net-misc/ssh-askpass-fullscreen net-misc/x11-ssh-askpass
