Windows Credential Store for Git

This application is a small helper app designed to follow the git credentials API as defined by the Git Documentation.

Installation

  1. Download the git-credential-winstore.exe application
  2. Run it! If you have GIT in your PATH, it should just work. If you don't, run 'git-credential-winstore -i C:\Path\To\Git.exe'.

FAQs

Why doesn't it work?

Make sure you're running the latest version of msysgit. The credential API is fairly new. I've tested this on version 1.7.10.

Why doesn't it install?

Make sure you're running with GIT on your PATH (perhaps by running from the GIT bash shell)

Where are you storing my credentials?

This app just uses the existing Windows Credential Store to hold your credentials. You can see the stored credentials by going to Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager and choosing "Windows Credentials". The entries starting "git:" are from git-credential-winstore.

I have another question?

That's not a question.

But I actually have another question...

Ok, you can email me at andrew@andrewnurse.net. Or post an issue in the Issues section.
