Every I use git it asks me for passphrase, even after I start/added the ssh-agent. How do i stop it?
When you create a ssh instance with
ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "EXPER"
You will get a prompt asking to enter a pass phrase.
Just hit return, the return again and no pass phrase will be created or needed.
But are you sure you want to not have a pass phrase?
I’m new to i3, so I don’t know if there’s something else I need to configure, but in others desktop enviroments I only had to type the passphrase once after I activated the agent.
How are you activating the agent and where are you calling got from?
This is how I usually do it (for ed25519 and GitHub):
ssh-keygen -o -a 100 -t ed25519 -f ~/.ssh/id_ed25519 -C "name/desc <email@example.com> eval "$(ssh-agent -s)" ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_ed25519 git config --global core.sshCommand "ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_ed25519 -F /dev/null"
Then add this to
~/.bash_profile (you will be prompted to enter the passphrase everytime you login to your system though):
if [ -z "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" ] ; then eval `ssh-agent -s` ssh-add fi
An alternative option is to use Keychain as manager for the ssh-agent and add this to your
~/.bash_profile. This allows for shells to share a single ssh-agent process.
eval $(keychain --eval --agents ssh --quick --quiet)
By default, the ssh-agent started by keychain is long-running and will continue to run, even after you have logged out from the system.

Furthermore, in your ~/.ssh/config
Host github Hostname ssh.github.com Port 443 User git PubKeyAuthentication yes IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_ed25519 ForwardX11 no IdentitiesOnly yes
