git config lets you set parameters for the current repository or globally.


  • git config <param_name> lists the current value for the given parameter
  • git config --global <param_name> <param_value>
    • param_name: user.name, user.email, core.editor
  • git config --list lists current configuration parameters


  • git config --global core.editor nano tells git to use the nano editor for commits
