Before using hubugs you must declare your authentication settings to enable access to the GitHub API.

You first need to define your GitHub user name:

▶ git config --global github.user '<username>'

And then you need to define your GitHub API token, this can be found in the account admin tab of your GitHub account page:

▶ git config --global github.token '<token>'


If you change your GitHub password your github.token setting will be invalid, and you must set it again.

If you wish to set the authentication information from the command line you can use the GITHUB_USER and GITHUB_TOKEN environment variables. For example:

GITHUB_USER=jnrowe GITHUB_TOKEN=xxx hubugs open
