GPG Signing with Git

Visual Studio Code have made this instrution video on how to setup verified commits on github.

Install GPG


Install gpg via homebrew: brew install gpg

Create GPG Key

Set up a GPG key for your GitHub account by following the Github guide: Generating a new GPG key

Save your GPG signing key in 1Password.

Adding the new GPG key to your GitHub account

Add the GPG key to your GitHub account (This is step 14 from the “Generating a new GPG key” guide) Adding the new GPG key

Configure git to default to signed commits

To set up GPG signed commits, replace YOUR_GPG_KEY id in the following script, and run it:

YOUR_GPG_KEY will be a long string of hex digits like: 981F5859DB768873A306424DAB0254A0AB3ECAA4

git config --global commit.gpgSign true
git config --global user.signingKey YOUR_GPG_KEY

You may want to use --local instead if you want to set up GPG signing (or use a different key) for only a specific repository.

All Abtion projects should use signed commits.

Make a signed commit

git commit --allow-empty -m 'GPG signed commit'

Test that it worked

git log --show-signature -1

    GPG signed commit


Failed to sign

error: gpg failed to sign the data
fatal: failed to write commit object

Run export GPG_TTY=$(tty) in your terminal and try again.

I don’t like having to type my password in all the time.

To avoid having to enter you password for each commit, you can create a ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf file with the following content:

default-cache-ttl 3600
max-cache-ttl 3600

This way you only have to provide your password once every hour. Run gpgconf --reload gpg-agent to reload your updated GPG configuration.
