Github Setup with Sourcetree

As of August 13th, 2021, Github no longer allows for user authentication via username and password. Need to use Personal Access Token for everything.


  • Open Keychain Access on Mac and search for ‘Github’ and replace password with [Personal Access Token] (github-personal-access-token.txt).
  • Within Sourcetree go to Preferences > Accounts and add Github. Auth type: basic, username tkloote, password [Personal Access Token].

Currently project is setup on 2019 Macbook Pro, 2021 Macbook Pro and 2015 Macbook Pro – airdrop directory to new computer if need to set up on new machine.

Dev Note: Github documentation for setting up new Personal Access Token. Note: if you need to change it, you’ll have to change it everywhere.
