const { getToken } = require("github-app-installation-token");

async function go() {
  const res = await getToken({
    appId: "from-earlier",
    installationId: "from-earlier",
    privateKey: `Paste the contents of your private key in here. Use backticks because it's multi-line`,
  console.log(res); // your token will be here

s = "Python syntax highlighting"
print s

There must be at least 3 dashes separating each header cell. The outer pipes (|) are optional, and you don't need to make the raw Markdown line up prettily. You can also use inline Markdown.


Blockquotes are very handy in email to emulate reply text. This line is part of the same quote.

Quote break.

This is a very long line that will still be quoted properly when it wraps. Oh boy let's keep writing to make sure this is long enough to actually wrap for everyone. Oh, you can put Markdown into a blockquote.
