I created the private repo examplesite/myprivaterepo using the Github UI from my browser.
Then I went to my go directory (on the desktop) and cloned it:
$ cd $GOPATH $ go get github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo
So far so good. Created the file scheduler.go, added to repo, and pushed.
$ vim scheduler.go $ git add scheduler.go $ git commit $ git push
Everythng’s OK. But when I went to a clean laptop and tried to clone the repo, I got an error:
# Now on laptop, which doesn't yet know about the repo $ cd $GOPATH $ go get github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo # At this point it should ask for my user ID and password ,right? But it doesn't. # Instead, this error occurs: cd .; git clone https://github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo /Users/tom/go/src/github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo Cloning into '/Users/tom/go/src/github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo'... fatal: could not read Username for 'https://github.com': terminal prompts disabled package github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo: exit status 128
Why is my laptop hating on my own repo and how can I get it to accept its fate? Thanks.
go get disables the “terminal prompt” by default. This can be changed by setting an environment variable of git:
env GIT_TERMINAL_PROMPT=1 go get github.com/examplesite/myprivaterepo
