:octocat: Utility that helps you switch git configurations with ease

Preface

It is possible that you have multiple git configurations. For example:

; Office Profile
Name: John Doe
Email: johndoe@office.com

; Personal Profile
Name: John Doe
Email: johndoe@gmail.com

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.

Features

  • 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.

Install

$ composer global require zeeshan/git-profile

Then check your $PATH variable. It must contain ~/.composer/vendor/bin dir.

$ echo $PATH

/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/home/username/.composer/vendor/bin

Modify your .zshrc or .bashrc files if your $PATH variable not contain composer/bin dir.

export PATH=~/.composer/vendor/bin:$PATH

Also you can use .phar file

  • Download the file from here
  • sudo chmod -R 755 git-profile
  • sudo mv git-profile /usr/local/bin/git-profile

Examples

Find some of the sample usages below

Adding Profiles

$ git-profile add

[+] Enter profile title: Office

[+] Enter Name: John Doe
[+] Enter Email: johndoe@office.com
[+] Enter Signingkey: B7156A83

[OK] Profile "Office" saved successfully

Remove Git Profile

$ git-profile rm "Office"

[OK] Profile "Office" successfully removed

Show Details for a profile

$ git-profile show "Office"

[+] Name:  John Doe
[+] Email: johndoe@office.com
[+] Signingkey: B7156A83

Updating Profile

$ git-profile update "Office"

[+] Enter Name: Jane Doe
[+] Enter Email: janedoe@gmail.com
[+] Enter Signingkey: 547ABB1C

[OK] Profile "Office" updated successfully

Switching Profile

Setting details locally i.e. set profile for the current project

$ git-profile use "Office"

[OK] Switched to "Office"

Setting details globally i.e. set global configuration

$ git-profile use "Office" --global

[OK] Switched to "Office"

Get Current Profile

$ git-profile current

[+] Current Profile "Office"
[+] Name: John Doe
[+] Email: johndoe@gmail.com
[+] 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-for-specified@profile.com"
$ git config user.signingkey "SIGNINGKEY"

Profiles List

$ git-profile list

    Office
