Authenticate with GitHub OAuth v0.9.0

A new step (0.9.0) is just released!

###Authenticating GitHub services with your Personal Access token was never this easy!

The step will add your GitHub OAuth config to the .netrc file. If you already have a .netrc file, the step will create a backup of the original, and appends the configs to the current one.

###To get your GitHub Personal Access Token, follow the instructions below:

  1. Login to yout GitHub account
  2. In the upper-right corner of any page, click your profile photo, then click Settings.
  3. In the left sidebar, click Personal access tokens.
  4. Click Generate new token.
  5. Give your token a descriptive name.
  6. Select the scopes, or permissions, you’d like to grant this token.
  7. Click Generate token.

Paste the received Personal Access Token into the step’s access_token input, and put your GitHub username to the username input.
