Change the email address git uses

$ git config --global user.email "your_new_email_address@tld.com"

Check that the email address was changed:

$ git config --global user.email 

The option --global will write to ~/.gitconfig file rather than the configuration file of a single repository i.e. .git/config. To update the email address git uses for a single repository omit the option --global.

Also: check out the option --system in the man page of git-config i.e. $ man git-config.

Note that local overrides global which overrides system.


I do self-funded research and I'm writing a book.

> What's the book about?

About technologies and agency.

Meaning, technologies can foster agency. No doubt. But I am also asking:

Can usage of technologies give us a sense of empowerment while in fact undermining our abilities?

I posted a summary of the prologue on the homepage: https://yctct.com/
