Defines a function you can use to fetch an Oauth2 token from github for your application.

You should set the User-Agent you'd like to use in ./user-agent.js. Otherwise it defaults to: "nodejs/0.0.1 (node) gist command line tool"

See the github api docs for more info on these parameters

var auth_prep = require("github-oauth2")

a few details about your application.
var get_auth = auth_prep("note", "", scopes)

get_auth(function(err, token){
