Git can be configured more than just name and email.

Git configurations are located in “global” as well as in local “repository”

# List config in global by using flag "global"
$ git config --global --list

# List config in local repository. It also inherits from global config
$ git config --list

# Update name and email
$ git config --global "Abracus Doe"
$ git config --global "[email protected]"

# Update the default editor
$ git config core.editor "vim"
$ git config core.editor "nvim"

# Add color to ui
$ git config color.ui false
