How to use multiple Github accounts in the same computer

if you want to use more than one github user on your mac osx computer, this tip can be quite useful. You simply add the file .gitconfig this block

    helper = osxkeychain
    useHttpPath = true

when you try to clone any repository, credentials will be prompted to you. ;)

osx keychain is a mac OS X feature, if you wanna use multiple accounts on windows, you might test the ssh method ;)
