See here; heard that this would be but very simple from the command line and linux…
Set your email: https://help.github.com/articles/setting-your-commit-email-address-in-git/
After uploading keys, test your ssh connection: https://help.github.com/articles/testing-your-ssh-connection/
Switch repo to use ssh rather than https: https://help.github.com/articles/changing-a-remote-s-url/#switching-remote-urls-from-https-to-ssh

but if i look at my atom editor i have the options of

  • connect with GIT
  • connect with GITHub

well whats the difference here betweeen git and github!? why cannot add some commmits while i see the git with create detached commend - nothing happens here?

I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking other than “what is the difference between Git and GitHub?” So, I’ll start by answering that 😀

Git is a distributed version control system that allows you to track revisions of a collection of files, referred to as “repositories”, most commonly text files that are used in software development. GitHub is a service that allows you to host and share Git repositories, track issues, collaborate with others, and generally showcase the projects you are or have worked on.

For the most part, the two have separate sets of functionality:

  • Git is concerned with the actions you take upon repositories such as commits, tracking revisions, adding and deleting files, etc
  • GitHub is concerned with the metadata around the Git repositories such as Issues, PRs, whether a repository is public or private, creating organizations to work on shared repositories, etc

So, depending on what you want to do, you would select the Git or GitHub functionality. Unfortunately, I’m not entirely certain from your description what it is you’re trying to do, so I can’t recommend one or the other until you give a little more concrete example.

I hope that helps!
