Fixing Gitbox in OS X Yosemite

A recent update seemed to have completely destroyed Gitbox in OS X Yosemite. This fix worked for me:

  1. Quit Gitbox.
  2. Delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.oleganza.gitbox.plist
  3. Run in Terminal: defaults delete com.oleganza.gitbox
  4. Run in Terminal: git config --global push.default matching
  5. Open Gitbox.

You may also need to run “git config push.default matching” in your repository if you have other value for “push.default” there.
