Git Configuration: Reading and Setting
If you ever need to list all the local and remote Git configurations, you can run this command.
git config -l|
You can also just display the value of a specific Git variable. For example, to find the URL of the Git repository that you are currently in, you can run this command.
$ git config --get remote.origin.url|
If you need to change any Git configuration value, then here is an example to update the Git repository’s URL variable.
git config remote.origin.url firstname.lastname@example.org:/new_directory/new_repository_name.git|
Finally, if you want to add a new remote, you can use this command.
git remote add origin ssh://USERNAME@SERVER:PORT/directory/repository_name.git|
That's it. You are now a Git configuration expert.
