How the new apps password will effect git command line



After reading the Bitbucket app passwords I'm a little confuse how the command line git should work. Can we continue and use it to push/pull or we will have to implement this password first and only then we will be able to use the push/pull commands.

Thanks for the clarification,

I hope there will be some explanations how to add the app password to a command line client and not just to the GUI ones.
