📅 2013-Mar-17 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

The Mercurial Keyring extension eliminates the pain of having to authenticate yourself with username and password every time you need to push or pull from repositories using the HTTPS protocol. Enabling this extension on Windows is pretty easy with TortoiseHg.

To install and enable this extension on Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install mercurial-keyring
$ sudo easy_install keyring
$ sudo easy_install mercurial_keyring

Tried with: Mercurial 2.0.2 and Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
