PyCharm and github
From Rabbi Blog
First time setup with github (I've had the account forever, maybe did one thing in it for Minetest. Now that I'm in a class in programming (Python) and working between home and school, it's probably a good idea to get this working. For the class we are using PyCharm and I've made a quick list of getting things set up.
- Have GitHub account
- Download Git
- Install C:\Program Files\Git
- Accept defaults (usually)
- PyCharm->Settings-Git->"C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.exe"
- Open PyCharm
- Open from Repository
- Get link from GitHub
- Right click the file to commit->git->commit
- Status: Untested
- TL\DR: Delete the applicable session token from https://github.com/settings/tokens to remove the classroom PyCharm access at the end of class.
- Request: If you have other git\github\repo questions, please start a new discussion (easier to track and have conversations about the specifics)
- Disclaimer: This is new to me, figuring it out as I go.
While I was getting my github linked to the classroom computer, I noted that 1) I explicitly left my password out of the PyCharm settings and 2) I was challenged by a GitHub web-panel to auth when I attempted to access my private repo. What I expected was that after closing PyCharm, I'd have to re-auth to use GitHub (why would I want to leave the shared PC linked to my GitHub instance?) and what I received however was a persistent connected session (even after reboot).I poked around PyCharm yesterday at the end of class to no avail and then it occurred to me this morning that the web-panel challenge was the key. I went looking around GitHub. Here is what I found:
- Log into the online GitHub account
- Go to GitHub's Settings->Developer Settings->Personal Access Tokens
- Find the token entry that is associated with the classroom computer
- Classroom PC naming convention is STUDENPC-XX
- git: https://github.com/ on STUDENTPC-23 at 31-Jan-2020 11:05
- Delete the session token
- Any applications or scripts using this token will no longer be able to access the GitHub API. You cannot undo this action
- The classroom PyCharm should no longer have access and if used, should also ask for a re-auth the next time you try to invoke accessing the repo from class.
From GitHub Down
- Start a project shell in GitHub
- Grab the link from GitHub
