I am required to give my git token twice every time I use the commit and push feature in eclipse, I was wondering if there was a way around that. I understand it is for security, but it gets annoying.

Yes. If you configure your GitHub credentials with the --global command when you configure your username and email GitHub will remember and should only prompt your credentials one additional time. Given this fix only works if you have a personal device, if you use a olin pc you can do this and it'll remember for your session. Hope this helps

I have been mostly using eclipse instead of Git Bash so I am unsure how to configure my username and email. Is there a certain command for that?


Nevermind I remembered, thank you so much. I'll update if the issue continues.
