Oh I see. So it's a bit confusing, but when you git push, the only way to authenticate is by using your email and API key. One way to do that is by putting the credentials directly in the git remote url. Another way to do it is to save the credentials in a .netrc file which gigalixir login does for you. Either method is fine and neither is recommended. The only reason why we used the former is because you can get your first deploy done without ever installing the cli.

For a simple deploy script like this one, the former method might be easier, but as this script potentially gets more complicated, you might need other cli commands and then you'll probably need to use the latter method.

Does that answer your question?

Perfect, thank you so much - that is exactly the kind of insight I was looking for!

Just to be clear, there's no need to url escape your username as mentioned in the docs for gigalixir as in reference to the travis ci example right?

Right. In this case, it's using a cli command to login so nothing needs to be escaped. It would need to be escaped if you used it in a git remote url.
