I am trying to use
usethis::use_github() to create a repository for a local project.
Following the documentation for the function, I first setup git using
usethis::use_git(). This worked fine.
Then, I used
usethis::browse_github_pat() to obtain a personal access token (PAT). I then used
usethis::edit_r_environ() and added this line:
Finally, I used
usethis::use_github(), and got the following message and then error:
Selection: 1 ✔ Creating GitHub repository ✔ Adding GitHub remote ✔ Pushing to GitHub and setting remote tracking branch Error in .local(object, ...) : Error in 'git2r_push': error authenticating:
I tried looking into the error (i.e., this issue in the git2r repo) but had trouble gaining traction. Any tips on how to get this up and running?
