As of last Friday, it seems I am unable to use my github password to authenticate myself, and now have to use a Personal Access Token. This seems counter intuitive to me, because, at least I can remember my own passwords, there is no way I can remember this PAT.
Documentation from Sublime is vague, at best, and basically points to Github’s steps to create a PAT. OK, what do i do with this PAT? Am I expected to use this PAT everytime I do a git action? Can I cache my credentials with Sublime Merge for longer than 7 days? I see documentation on using Git Credentials store or an OS keyring, but specific documentation is lacking or vague, especially for Linux. As popular as Linux is with developers, I’d be surprised if I’m the only one struggling to understand how to cache credentials.
Can anyone suggest a way to cache my github credentials?
As someone with mobility and dexterity issues, convenience and usabilty is way more important to me than security.
