Extra configuration for GitHub and Gist

To avoid needing to constantly input your username and password, you’ll want to create the following Bootstrap Function in a file such as .SpaceVim.d/autoload/myspacevim.vim.

func! myspacevim#before() abort
  "other configs
  let g:github_dashboard = { 'username': 'yourgithubuser', 'password': $GITHUB_TOKEN }
  let g:gista#client#default_username = 'monkeyxite'

We recommend generating a personal access token and storing it securely in an environment variable. Refer to github dashboard for more information.

# in some secure file sourced in your .bashrc, .bash_profile, .zshrc, etc.
export GITHUB_TOKEN="<your 40 char token>"
