I'm going to use a Docker image to be able to use multiple github accounts from the same machine without so much trouble. To keep the image small I will use Alpine as a base image and only install the basics: git, vim, openssh-client.
In order to build the image we need to create a new file called Dockerfile and write the following:
FROM alpine:latest LABEL maintainer="@ech0Server" RUN apk update RUN apk add git vim openssh-client
Then, to build the docker image run:
docker build -t username/imagename:latest .
This command not only will build the image but it will tag it with the -t option, for my case I did:
docker build -t drverboten/multigitaccount:latest .
I will assume that you already have a Docker Hub account or create a docker hub account, then:
$ export DOCKER_ID_USER="username" $ docker login #it will prompt you for your username and password
If you followed the previous instructions your image should be already tagged, if not then you can tag your image by:
docker tag my_image $DOCKER_ID_USER/my_image
Finally we can push the Docker image to the Hub:
docker push drverboten/multigitaccount:latest
After that is completed you can go to: https://hub.docker.com/u/username and see that the image was successfully uploaded.
My image can be found here: https://hub.docker.com/r/drverboten/multigitaccount/
And you can pull it by doing:
docker pull drverboten/multigitaccount
