Github User Search Build Status

Search and view users via the Github API -

Requests are cached in session storage to limit the use of the API.

What is this?

A personal project built with React, Redux and other tools to search users and view their profiles on Github. Nothing serious.

Feel free to open issues for questions/improvements!

API limit

The Github API has a fairly strict limit (hence the indicator of your remaining requests in the footer). When running the app locally you can export a personal access token and this will be sent along in any API calls to increase the limit:

export USER_SEARCH_OAUTH=<your token>
yarnpkg run start
