github login erroring out


#1

I’m not exactly sure what happened, but I successfully logged in with github yesterday on one page, but afterward have not been logged in and have gotten ‘Oops, an unexpected error occurred’ whenever I try to log-in again on this computer. I am guessing I could fix the issue by clearing some browser state or logging out/in from Github, but figure I might leave it as is for a bit in case there’s a way to help you folks debug. (Maybe something to do with the domain dropping beta.?)


#2

We did recently deploy a change to authentication cookies that could cause this problem (lost changes). If you clear your (Observable) cookies and sign in again, it should fix itself.


#3

Yes, that fixed it, as expected.
