    I'm waiting for this feature for a long time. When package manager is going to provide proper support for adding packages from online git repositories? Do you have plans to implement this feature?

    Hi @mnarimani ,

    It depends on what you mean by *proper*. The Package Manager supports *Git URL* dependencies since 19.1 in the project manifest: https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/upm-git.html

    Support for Git URL dependencies in package manifest is planned. No ETA.

    Regards,

    Pascal

    Hi,
    What I mean by proper is same support level as Unity's packages. For unity packages, We have a full working UI that enables us to easily add a specific version of a package to project. It also automatically resolves all dependencies that a package might have.

    When I created this thread I had not seen Unity 2019.3.0 alpha version yet.
    When I got Unity 2019.3, I was very amazed by your work. There was finally a visual button that adds a git repository as a package. That button helps me a lot since I don't have to remember the syntax of manifest file every time that I want to add something.

    Anyway, I'm happy with the current results now. Thank you for all of your work.

    Best regards.
