Setup keybase.io, GPG and signed Git commits

README.md

This is a step-by-step guide on how to create a GPG key on keybase.io, adding it to a local GPG setup and use it with Git and GitHub.

Although this guide was written for OS X, most commands should work in other operating systems as well.

Requirements

$ brew install gpg keybase

You should already have an account with Keybase and be signed in locally using $ keybase login. In case you need to set up a new device first, follow the instructions provided by the keybase command during login.

Make sure your local version of Git is at least 2.0 ($ git –version) to automatically sign all your commits. If that’s not the case, use Homebrew to install the latest Git version: $ brew install git.

Create a new GPG key on keybase.io

$ keybase pgp gen –multi
# Enter your real name, which will be publicly visible in your new key: Patrick
