You'll need Git and Node.js (which comes with npm) installed on your computer

node@v10.16.0 or higher

1. From your command line, clone and run react-blog-github:

# Clone this repository
$ git clone

# Go into the repository
$ cd react-blog-github

# Install dependencies
$ npm install

2. Generate a Github Personal Access Token.

Generate a Github personal access token using these Instructions Make sure you don't select any scope just generate a simple token without any scope

After that copy your generated token and then encode your token into base 64 using this Website
