Resolve the path to the user's local or global .gitconfig.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your :heart: and support.


Install with npm:
$ npm install --save git-config-path


Automatically gets the nearest .git config path, starting with the current working directory, then looking in the user's home directory.
var gitConfigPath = require('git-config-path')();
//=> '/Users/jonschlinkert/dev/git-config-path/.git/config'

To force git-config-path to only look for a global config path, pass global:
var gitConfigPath = require('git-config-path')('global');
//=> '/Users/jonschlinkert/.gitconfig'
