Git allows you to configure a global and per-project Git profile consisting of name and email address.
Git commands come handy when you want to set or change your git identity.
Changes only affect future commits.
The first thing you should do when you install Git is to set your name and email address.
This is important because every Git commit uses this information. By default this information will be used if none other specified.
And it's immutably baked into the commits you create.
git config --global user.name "your-name"
git config --global user.email "your-email"
--global option will set your global commit name & email address.
Once done, verify that the information is configured by executing below command in terminal:
git config --list
git config --global user.name "Jane Doe"
git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
