Setup Github access

Modified 2 days ago by tanij

This chapter describes how to create a Github account and setup SSH on the robot and on the laptop.

Add a public key to Github

Modified 2018-06-24 by Andrea Censi

You will do this procedure twice: once for the public key created on the laptop, and later with the public key created on the robot.

A public/private keypair already created and configured. This procedure is explained in (unknown ref software_reference/howto-create-key-pair)

I will ignore this because it is an external link. 

 > I do not know what is indicated by the link '#software_reference/howto-create-key-pair'.

Location not known more precisely.

Created by function check_if_any_href_is_invalid in module mcdp_docs.check_missing_links.

You can access Github using the key provided.


Since I am not as familiar with Linux an VIM it would have been great to say how we can get access to the public key: sudo vim /home/username/.ssh/username@host name.pub and than copy it and add it on github SL

Go to settings (Figure 3.4).

Add the public key that you created:

To check that all of this works, use the command

$ ssh -T git@github.com

The command tries to connect to Github using the private keys that you specified. This is the expected output:

Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address 'ip address' to the list of known hosts.
Hi username! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access.

If you don’t see the greeting, stop.

Repeat what you just did for the Duckiebot on the laptop as well, making sure to change the name of the file containing the private key.
