I just created a nest account named
myname, and tried using a ssh key to retrieve and push some project for testing, as i’m new to both pijul and nest.pijul.com. I though it might be useful to report the confusion in ran into here.
myproject on my nest account, created an ssh key and a dedicated Host
pijul_host in my
~/.ssh/config (I’m running linux), added the ssh key in my nest account. As the documentation mentionned, i created a
~/.config/pijul/config.toml file with email and username.
pijul clone pijul_host:myname/myproject
created a file and
recorded it using
then I pushed using
pijul push pijul_host:myname/myproject
It worked… but in the meantime, pijul asked for info already in
~/.config/pijul/config.toml, created an
secretkey.json file in
~/.config/pijul/identities/myname/ so i’m not event sure my initial
config.toml and ssh key where used.
So I’m confused by the procedure and wonder what command I should have run to clone/record/push in order to use my initial
config.toml and the ssh key I generated and referenced in
~/.ssh/config. What would be a step by step procedure to do that ?
Unrelated: is there a way to set a per-repo identity file (as opposed to a user global one in
On a sidenote, It would be very nice if
nest was showing a brief how-to message à la github when a new repo is created.
Thanks for reading, have a good day.
