Authentication will be made via access token.
To generate your personal access token visit https://github.com/settings/tokens.

NOTE:
Never hardcode any credential information in the code. Always use an environment
file to store the private information and use the `os` module to get the information
during runtime.

Create a ".env" file in the root directory and write these two lines in that file
with your token::

#!/usr/bin/env bash
export USER_TOKEN=""
