Generating and Adding an SSH Key
A common transport protocol for Bit when self-hosting is over SSH. This is because SSH access to servers is already set up in most places – and if it isn’t, it’s easy to do. SSH is also an authenticated network protocol; and because it’s ubiquitous, it’s generally easy to set up and use.
This makes SSH the preferred method for collaboration when developing components for remote Collections.
Generating an SSH key with MacOS
To generate an SSH key simply follow these steps:
- Open the terminal application.
- Run this command (replace ‘email’ with the email associated with your bit account):
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "email@example.com"
- Accept the default location for the key file.
- To add a private key to the SSH-agent please follow the steps below:
Start the SSH agent:
eval "$(ssh-agent -s)"
Add the private key we’ve created in the last step:
Generating an SSH key with Windows
To generate an SSH key, please follow these steps:
- Download and start the puttygen.exe generator.
- In the “Parameters” section choose SSH2 DSA and press Generate.
- Move your mouse randomly in the small screen in order to generate the key pairs.
- Enter a key comment, which will identify the key (useful when you use several SSH keys).
- Type in the passphrase and confirm it. The passphrase is used to protect your key. You will be asked for it when you connect via SSH.
- Click “Save private key” to save your private key.
- Click “Save public key” to save your public key.
