Note that when you getUser() you will get a user that represents the authenticated user. This will slightly change the calls to GitHub. In general you should have to worry about the differences between Listing your repos and listing a user’s repos because things should just work.

import GitHub from 'github-api';

// basic auth
const gh = new GitHub({
   username: 'FOO',
   password: 'NotFoo'

const me = gh.getUser();
me.listNotification(function(err, notifcations) {
   // do some stuff

const clayreimann = gh.getUser('clayreimann');
   .then(function({data: reposJson}) {
     console.log(`clayreimann has ${reposJson.length} repos!`);
