When did using git commands become so complicated?

| A year and half ago you just needed to enter your credentials once to do some pulls and commits on your private repos, and now you first need to create a personal token, then some ssh keys, and associate them to your user, and more that I still expect to find...

Ffs, I just wanted to do a small commit on an old repo. Why is it so frustrating?

| how is generating a key pair and copy pasting the pub key complicated? it takes seconds

| it's way less effort then confirming an email, we should just use key pairs instead of accounts...

| but i guess mandating it is kinda shitty

This. You can even set it passwordless (not that I would do it...), and then pull and push without needing to do anything else.

| Git commands didn't change in years. As for github, no one is telling you to use it.

| >>794803 it takes seconds if you know how to do it, which was not my case. Github itself gives a link to show how it's done, but the whole process is explained in 4 different links, and that was kinda frustrating.

Yeah Github's documentation for this is out of whack for some reason. The actual process is fairly simple. It's not Git's fault though, just Github's.
