I generate SSH keys a lot. Here’s how to make them (and add them to your Github account) as fast as humanly possible.
- Open https://github.com/settings/ssh/new in a new tab
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096in your terminal. Make a passphrase. Save the key in the default location.
eval "$(ssh-agent -s)"; ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa; cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
- Copy and paste the terminal output into the Github page you opened before.
