Github API Rate Limiting

Since this extension fetches data using Github public v3 API for showing file size and download_url, it consumes free quota which is very less Github API Rate Limiting.

To tackle this, create a new Github Access Token.

  1. If logged-in, visit https://github.com/settings/tokens
  2. Generate a new token, select repo scope and create a one.
  3. Copy and store the generated token which looks something like: 17c1a8d5b399d66b6212382d98d4c67a94d58955 (a fake one :P).
  4. Click on extension icon and then on Settings-Options on top right.

    OR

    Go to chrome://extensions, find github-plus and click on Options.

  5. Enter the valid Github Access Token

  6. Click on SAVE and Enjoy the benefits.

This Chrome extension will automatically pick this valid access token and Bingo!
