Usage

var ghsign = require('ghsign')
 
// create a signer (has be your own Github username) 
var sign = ghsign.signer('mafintosh')
 
// create a verifier (can be any Github username) 
var verify = ghsign.verifier('mafintosh')
 
// sign some data 
sign('test', function(err, sig) {
  console.log('test signature is', sig)
 
  // verify the signature 
  verify('test', sig, function(err, valid) {
    console.log('wat test signed by mafintosh?', valid)
  })

Creating a signer will fetch your public keys from github and use your corresponding local ssh private key to sign the data. The verifier will verify the signature by also fetching the public keys from Github.
