Configuring private github repo with additional ssh key
Recently, i found that for some cases that you might want to commit to private github repo with additional ssh key can be tricky. I googled for a solution and found this one is quite effective. All you need to do is share ssh key to github repo and config your ssh config file to choose an additional ssh key as ssh identity.
Step 1 - Create an additional ssh key
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "[email protected]" -f ~/.ssh/<filename> or ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -b 4096 -C "[email protected]" -f ~/.ssh/<filename>
Step 2 - Add origin to your local copy
git remote remove origin git remote add origin [email protected]:<github_user>/<repository>.git
Step 3 - Config ssh config
Host <repository>.github.com HostName github.com User git IdentityFile ~/.ssh/<filename> IdentytiesOnly yes
With these three steps,your local copy should be able to collaborate with preivate repository.
