Sometimes, during the day as an offensive security engineer or bug hunter, we come across a leaked token and we need to test it. This tool was born out of my need to do this routinely with tokens coming from Github.

Single URL:

echo ghp_0000000000000000000000 | gh-test

Multiple tokens:

cat tokens.txt | gh-test


First, you’ll need to install go.

Then run this command to download + compile gh-test:

go install

You can now run ~/go/bin/gh-test. If you’d like to just run gh-test without the full path, you’ll need to export PATH="/go/bin/:$PATH". You can also add this line to your ~/.bashrc file if you’d like this to persist.
