The default config file is ~/.gitconfig.

For example you can add default color to git (git diff, git status, etc...) by adding this line to your .gitconfig :


branch = auto

status = auto

diff = auto

You have to set your username and email which will appear in your future commits messages :

name = Your Full Name
email =

Very useful alias to check arborescence :


ls = log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --abbrev-commit
la = log --color --graph --pretty=format:'%Cred%h%Creset -%C(yellow)%d%Creset %s %Cgreen(%cr) %C(bold blue)<%an>%Creset' --abbrev-commit --all
