access github through proxy

In China mainland, you never know for what reason a website gets blocked by the fucking GFW. Even if the site has nothing to do with politics. github is a example, many developers in China are victims. This post is about how to access github via a proxy, such as goagent.
The git pull/push command can be instructed to access remote server via proxy by setting https_proxy environment variable. So, we can run commands below use proxy.
https_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8087 git pull
or
export https_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8087
git push
But we may get below error because the goagent ssl certificate can't be verified.
error: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate while accessing https://github.com/xxxxxxxxxxx
fatal: HTTP request failed
To resolve this problem, we can force git not to verify ssl ceritificate by setting GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY environment variable.
export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true
git pull
To make these settings perminately for a git project or globally. We can write them to git config file.
git config http.proxy http://127.0.0.1:8087
git config http.sslVerify false
The resulting .git/config file is like this:
[core]
    repositoryformatversion = 0
    filemode = true
    bare = false
    logallrefupdates = true
    ignorecase = true
[remote "origin"]
    url = https://github.com/rxwen/my_posts.git
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
[http]
    proxy = http://127.0.0.1:8087
    sslVerify = false
BTW, there is a rumour that Fang BingXing gets ill badly recently. Wish Death can conquer him as soon as possible, amen.
