- How to find your NuGet.Config.
- My package feed is located at https://nuget.pkg.github.com/LordMike/index.json.
- You must authenticate to this feed with an access token. Create one here - make sure it has the read:packages scope.
Method A: Add user-wide using CLI
Run the following command
dotnet nuget add source -n gh-lordmike https://nuget.pkg.github.com/LordMike/index.json -u MyGithubUser -p MyGithubToken
This adds a package source for your user account, and allows you to consume my packages from all projects you have. On Windows, the password is encrypted on disk.
Method B: Add the source to your project(s) only
Much like Method A, it is possible to add a NuGet.Config file to your project only. Nuget will search for additional config files in parent directories, until it finds one.
NOTE: The file must be named "NuGet.Config". On *nix systems, the name is case-sensitive.
dotnet nuget add source -n gh-lordmike https://nuget.pkg.github.com/LordMike/index.json --configfile NuGet.Config -u MyGithubUser -p MyGithubToken
Method A/B, note on sharing
If you share the NuGet.Config between mulitple computers, it will likely not work as the password is encrypted. You may choose to store the password in plaintext, to allow others to read it.. It shouldn't be so bad, as the token will only have access to reading packages (... you did only give it that permission, right?).
If desired, append --store-password-in-clear-text to the previous commands.
