Github Issues / Blogs

πŸš€ Get Up and Running in 10 Minutes

You can get a react-blog site up and running on your local dev environment in 10 minutes with these five steps:

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.

You'll need Git and Node.js (which comes with npm) installed on your computer

node@v10.16.0 or higher
npm@6.9.0 or higher
git@2.17.1 or higher

1. From your command line, clone and run react-blog-github:

# Clone this repository
$ git clone

# Go into the repository
$ cd react-blog-github

# Install dependencies
$ npm install

2. Generate a Github Personal Access Token.

Generate a Github personal access token using these Instructions Make sure you don't select any scope just generate a simple token without any scope

After that copy your generated token and then encode your token into base 64 using this Website

Copy your base64 converted token

3. Create a GitHub App

Go on the following URL:

There are a few fields to fill carefully:

In permissions & events, set Read & Write on Issues In "Install App", install the app on your user and select your repository

4. Change /src/config.js.

Go to your cloned repository and make the following changes in /src/config.js

export const config = {
  // Your Github Converted Token To Know How To Get Your Token Look at
  githubConvertedToken: "Your token here",

  // Your Github UserName
  githubUserName: "Your username here",

  // Your Github Repo Name Where You Have your issues as Blog
  githubRepo: "Your repo's name here",

  // Set it to true if you have a Github app to add to this project
  // and fill the client ID & secret
  enableOAuth: true,
  OAuthClientID: 'Github App Client ID',
  OAuthSecret: 'Github App Secret',

  // Your Personal Blog Title
  title : "Title of your blog" ,

  // Your Personal Blog Subtitle
  subtitle : "Subtitle of your blog",

  // Header customization
  header: {
    backgroundColor: '#f1f6f8', // can be a CSS gradient
    titleColor: '#ff5252',
    subtitleColor: '#37474f',

5. Write A Blog.

After doing following changes now you just need to write a blog on repository issues that you have mentioned in your config.js

  • Open your repository github issues
  • Create a new issue
  • Now write your blog in github issue in markdown. You can also use slack edit to write your markdown
  • Add a label blog on your github issue to make it different from other standard issues. Keep in mind blog label is mandatory otherwise it won't show on your website.

6. Start Your React App.

That's it now you just need to start your react application From your command line run .

# Run
$ npm start
