Re: Download from Github Package Registry without authentication

Yes they need something like `mavenCentral()` to add to the build.gradle/pom.xml.

 

Otherwise the whole feature is useless IMO.

Re: Download from Github Package Registry without authentication

It's not entirely useless, since it's still convenient for private artifacts, but it's extremely limiting, for sure.

Re: Download from Github Package Registry without authentication

This mandatory authentication is quite strange decision for public NuGet packages. How it's supposed to work for big decentralized team?

 

So I want to start using a package from github. And I don't want to send everyone instructions how to make solution build after it. I can add repository in nuget.config to avoid everyone in team to add github source. What should I use for credentials here - seems keep it empty? But then what? Everyone in team have to create github account and do authentication? So it looks like it's usable only for personal projects.

Re: Download from Github Package Registry without authentication

They'd not only have to use a personal access token, but one that is scoped with "read:packages" on your repo, and SSO enabled, if applicable, so it's not just a matter convenience. I agree that it's very unfortunate.
