GitHub API usage estimate #1335

Is there a way to estimate/count the number of API requests Octobox will make for a given user?

I have a self hosted deployment of 5fea753 setup as an OAuth GitHub app just for me (no other users I know of, how would I check?) and in the last two or three days I started hitting the API limit. It took me a while to narrow down what was causing this as I have a few apps and personal access tokens running that consume the API. However now I am down to just Octobox as OAuth app (I've regenerated all other access tokens that had traffic in the last week without replacing them in the configs of the respective apps)

When I leave the browser tab open it seems to consume around 20-ish API calls each time I press the refresh button. Does that seem reasonable? Even so it seems hard to imagine that this woudl eat through my 5000 requests limit.

Ideas how to poke at this welcome.

It tells me what I already know: my API limit is exhausted :) I can't find a way to get GitHub to tell me what/who is using up my API calls. For that you have to go back to the individual apps (I think). Hence trying to get an estimate of what Octobox should be using and/or how to query for what it is actually using.

When I leave octobox open in a tab for a while (maybe a few hours while working?) I now frequently see "API limits exhausted" error messages in octobox popup :-/

Deploying master now to see if that helps.
