I'm creating an app in Swift Playgrounds for iPad and can easily add Swift Packages from public GitHub repositories this way. But how can I add a package from my private repo? I've seen answers relating to using SSH via XCode but I'm on an iPad so am assuming these wouldn't work in my case. Is there a safe way to achieve this? And if not, is there an easy way?
When I've tried adding the https url of my repo via the "Add Package" menu item, I get the following error message:
git error unknown(34):GIT_EAUTH - remote authentication required but no callback set
I found a similar question on the Apple Developer Forum and according to one of the answers it would work if you used a PAT (Personal Access Token).
Since I already have one set up I decided to try it and it worked fine with one of my private repos.
So create a PAT if you don't have it, see GitHub: Create personal Access Token and then include it in the url when adding the package to your app
