credential: apply helper config
The functionality for credential storage helpers is already there; we just need to give the users a way to turn it on. This patch provides a "credential.helper" configuration variable which allows the user to provide one or more helper strings. Rather than simply matching credential.helper, we will also compare URLs in subsection headings to the current context. This means you can apply configuration to a subset of credentials. For example: [credential ""] helper = foo would match a request for "", but not one for "". This is overkill for the "helper" variable, since users are unlikely to want different helpers for different sites (and since helpers run arbitrary code, they could do the matching themselves anyway). However, future patches will add new config variables where this extra feature will be more useful. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
