I am on a windows 10 machine, running IDL 8.7.3 and getting progressively bald! (... from pulling my hair out!)

I am trying to configure IDL to use with GitHub. The documentation seems outdated and doesn't address HTTPS adequately.

I have managed to clone a repo from GitHub, i can pull content and commit changes locally, however i can not push. I receive the message " https://github.com/user/repo.git : not authorized". I have read the documentation and i see nothing addressing this. (I think the problem is because of HTTPS)

I use GitHub with R daily so i am not a complete novice. Set up and use with RStudio is a breeze.

I see the .config file for Eclipse is in a different folder that my c/users/me folder. So i have made sure the settings are identical.

Can someone provide detailed instructions regarding the settings that should be used to interface with GitHub using HTTPS?

thanks in advance

It's generally best to ask questions about Eclipse's Git integration on the EGit forum:

https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/48/

I believe that to make https work for push you need to include the ID in the URL so that you can be prompted for that ID's password, e.g., https://<user-id>@github.com/user/repo.git
