Configure your identity
Make sure to set a user name and email address when you install Bit. Every component’s version uses this information, and it’s immutable after you perform
In order to streamline this process, if you are using Git and have already set up your identity in your global Git configuration (
git config for
user.email), By default, Bit will read these settings, and use them.
If you do not use Git, set your user name and email address according to this command:
$ bit config set user.name "mickey mouse" $ bit config set user.email email@example.com
