Qt Creator, how to push project into GitHub?

  • I have Win XP SP3, git version 1.7.9.msysgit.0.
    I can push from command line into GitHub in regular order.
    But in Qt Creator I cannot do it, because I have following messages:
    20:27 Executing in D:\office\qt\cuteterm: C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.cmd push
    usage: git credential-cache [options]

    --exit                tell a running daemon to exit
    --reject              reject a cached credential
    --timeout <n>         number of seconds to cache credentials
    --socket <path>       path of cache-daemon socket
    --chain <helper>      use <helper> to get non-cached credentials
    --username <name>     an existing username
    --description <desc>  human-readable description of the credential
    --unique <token>      a unique context for the credential

    Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.
    ssh.exe": Username for '': : no address associated with name
    The command 'C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.cmd' terminated with exit code 128

    How to configure Qt Creator properly?

  • Moderators

    How do you push on the command line? Do you push to the same remote? could very well be a read-only url.

  • Yes. I set up remote, as it described "here":

    D:\office\qt\cuteterm>git remote -v
    origin (fetch)
    origin (push)

    I suppose, I cannot push because regular push is interactive and require entering username and password.

  • Moderators

    Creator does not support entering login/passwords, sorry.

    Can you use SSH? If you register a public key with github? That does work for me.

  • I never tried to work with it. I will read about it.

  • Moderators

    Give it a try: Git over SSH is supposed to be more efficient than git over HTTP, so it is the preferred option. And it is more convenient since you do not have to provide passwords all the time.

  • I created Publickeys and setup it in GitHub interface.
    But it still ask me to enter passphrase every time when I try push to remote.

    d:\office\qt\cuteterm>git push
    Enter passphrase for key '/c/Documents and Settings/phil/.ssh/id_rsa':

  • Moderators

    Either use a ssh-agent to have that provide the passphrase for you or set an empty passphrase.

  • good I solve my problem
