Github Packages

Create a Personal Access Token on Github

Inside your GitHub Account:

  1. Go to Settings -> Developer Settings -> Personal Access Tokens -> Generate new token

  2. Make sure to select the scope read:packages and Generate a token

  3. After the token is generated, be sure to copy your new personal access token. It will not be accessible again. If the key is lost, the only option is to generate a new key.

Configure your Github Personal Access Token

To configure your token, a file containing your Github User ID and Personal Access Token must be placed in your project's root directory as shown below:


Alternatively, you can set the environment variables GPR_USER and GPR_API_KEY.

Add Github Packages Repository to Application Module's build.gradle

Next, define the Github Packages as a repository in the application module's build.gradle by adding the following section:

def githubProperties = new Properties() githubProperties.load(new FileInputStream(rootProject.file("")))
repositories {
    maven {
        name = "GitHubPackages"
        url = uri("")
        credentials {        
            /** Create in root project folder file with     
            ** gpr.usr=GITHUB_USER_ID & gpr.key=PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN 
            ** Or set env variable GPR_USER & GPR_API_KEY if not adding a properties file**/
            username = githubProperties['gpr.usr'] ?: System.getenv("GPR_USER")
            password = githubProperties['gpr.key'] ?: System.getenv("GPR_API_KEY")

        metadataSources {

Add Dependency to Snapscreen SDK in Application Module's build.gradle

dependencies {
    //consume library
    implementation ''

Note: If you have configured the project repositories via settings.gradle and changed the dependencyResolutionManagement to settings such as FAIL_ON_PROJECT_REPOS this may necessitate a change in where the repository is defined.
