Using a GitHub Personal Access Token to resolve the
fatal: could not read username for 'https://github.com'
error when first pushing changes to GitHub.
How to do that
The final steps involve adding information to the .gitconfig file and creating a .git-credentials file to hold the personal access token just generated.
$ ls .gitconfig
will print the file name ".gitconfig" if it exists.
Second, use git commands to set up using the personal access key
(this command says credentials are stored in a local file named ".git-credentials").
$ git config --global credential.helper store
Third, create the credential file to hold the personal access key.
Copy the personal access key generated in GitHub to the clipboard (if you did not do that above)
Now, type the following in the terminal window replacing "YourGitHubUserName" with your actual GitHub user name:
$ echo "https://YourGitHubUserName:$(pbpaste)@github.com" > .git-credentials
