Acessing private repositories

If you want to access private repositories or the API limit has been reached, all you need to do is to create a Personal API token (instructions here)

Give it the all the repo permissions and you're good to go!

Once you got it just export it in your bash/zsh/fish profile.

export GIT_GUD=<your-token-here>
