NAME

git-credential-cache - Helper to temporarily store passwords in memory  

SYNOPSIS

git config credential.helper 'cache [options]'

 

DESCRIPTION

This command caches credentials in memory for use by future Git programs. The stored credentials never touch the disk, and are forgotten after a configurable timeout. The cache is accessible over a Unix domain socket, restricted to the current user by filesystem permissions.

You probably doncqt want to invoke this command directly; it is meant to be used as a credential helper by other parts of Git. See gitcredentials(7) or EXAMPLES below.  

OPTIONS

--timeout <seconds>

Number of seconds to cache credentials (default: 900).

--socket <path>

Use <path> to contact a running cache daemon (or start a new cache daemon if one is not started). Defaults to ~/.git-credential-cache/socket. If your home directory is on a network-mounted filesystem, you may need to change this to a local filesystem.
 

CONTROLLING THE DAEMON

If you would like the daemon to exit early, forgetting all cached credentials before their timeout, you can issue an exit action:

git credential-cache exit

 

EXAMPLES

The point of this helper is to reduce the number of times you must type your username or password. For example:

$ git config credential.helper cache
$ git push http://example.com/repo.git
Username: <type your username>
Password: <type your password>

[work for 5 more minutes]
$ git push http://example.com/repo.git
[your credentials are used automatically]

You can provide options via the credential.helper configuration variable (this example drops the cache time to 5 minutes):

$ git config credential.helper 'cache --timeout=300'
