Microsoft recently announced the open-source release of the Git Credential Manager for Mac and Linux. This follows the release of the GCM for Windows. The tool was ported to Mac and Linux to simplify their authentication to remote Git repositories, in particular those hosted in Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).
