How to configure Git to remember username and password in a repository?

So that you don’t have to constantly enter your username and password while working with the git repository, you can save this information as follows:

git config credential.helper store
git config user.name "Goran Štimac"
git config user.email "info@goranstimac.net"

Of course, instead of my name and email details, you will enter your details.

You can also use this short command if you clone a repository

git clone https://<USERNAME>:<PASSWORD>@github.com/path/to/repo.git

IMPORTANT these commands save the login information to a file located in the repository directory

.git/config

as plain text which means you can easily reveal user data to others so use it carefully!
