Migration Troubleshooting

Since everyone has different content in their Medium blogs, you might encounter some issues that can't be fixed in a standardized way or aren't worth trying. These issues and potential workarounds will be posted below:

  • JSX closing tag parsing error - Issue #56. You may have some self-closing, void tags in your blog posts. JSX requires all tags to be self-closed so even though the HTML break tag can be written as <br>, you will need to change the syntax to read <br/> or go back later after running the migration and place the tags in a code block.
  • GitHub authentication errors - Issue #54. GitHub allows users to set up authentication several different ways. For instance, if you have two-factor authentication enabled, you have to provide a token in certain cases when cloning down repositories. Please check your authentication settings if you experience any issues related to authentication failures.
