    use GitHub::Apps::Auth;
    my $auth = GitHub::Apps::Auth->new(
        private_key     => "<filename>", # when read private key from file
        private_key     => \$pk,         # when read private key from variable
        app_id          => <app_id>,
        login           => <organization or user>
    );
    # This method returns the cached token inside an object.
    # However, refresh expired token automatically.
    my $token  = $auth->issued_token;

    # If you want to use with Pithub
    use Pithub;
    # GitHub::Apps::Auth object behaves like a string.
    # This object calls the `issued_token` method
    # each time it evaluates as a string.
    my $ph = Pithub->new(token => $auth, ...);
