Generates a list of authors/contributors of an git repository with GitHub links.


$ npm -g install authors


$ cd my-git-repo
$ authors

Optional Authentication

To get around GitHub's API rate limiting you can provide a personal OAuth2 access token, e.g.

$ OAUTH_TOKEN=43db965473740003c87b6467dd7aed645f832d1c authors

You can create and revoke personal access tokens in your account settings. For this use case no special permissions are required, so public access is sufficient.
