themekit credentials for client store

Hello -

After a store has given a partner account permission to edit themes, is there a way to generate a token for themekit?  

It's a little awkward asking the client to generate a private app. :(

I am looking for the same info.
My client enabled private app development but I still can't see the link to "Manage private apps".
Do I have to ask the shop owner to create a private app and send me the password?
I need it to work with themekit.

Answer from Shopify support: the client has to do it themselves:

"After your client has enabled app development they will need to then create the private app (they will just need to add the app name and the emergency developer contact email). Once that is done they should then be able to send you the API key and you should then be able to have access to the private app.

Let me know if the option does not appear."

Just want to confirm that there’s no way to generate the private app credentials for a client thru my partners account with collaborator access with theme and app permissions?

I’d very much prefer to work with my local tools instead of the editor from the admin side

please advise

than much — Rob
