  • Provide your GitHub username and repo.
    • If you don't have a repo yet, it's easiest to create from the template.
    • You can set the visibility of your repo to either Public or Private. The extension works in both cases.
  • Create a new personal access token for the extension to add content on behalf of you. Make sure you select the repo scope.

  • Use README.md as the storage filename. Other filenames work too but GitHub will not automatically render it as the home page for your repo.
  • Click Connect and make sure you get a success message.

  • Now navigate to any page and re-open the extension. You will be able to save new content.

Contributions

My current focus is to bring the entire osmos::craft project online. Until then, I have no bandwidth for new feature requests or PRs. However, issues and bug reports are always welcome. I'll keep track of issues and address them once I have more time. Thank your for being patient.
