Special note about Github Repo Cards and rate limits

If the Repo Card area start to appear empty sometimes, this could be because the IP address you ran the build from was rate limited by Github. This can commonly happen when running from Github Actions.

If running from Github Actions, no need to do anything, the automatically generated GITHUB_TOKEN should get passed in to the action and used by the API calls.

If not running on Github Actions, you’ll need to generate a token on Github with the repos permission. Then pass that as a --githubtoken argument when running the npm run build or npm run serve commands, for example:

npm run serve --githubtoken=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
