A small set of functionality to retrieve repository data from github, in JSON format.
No installation required, as you can execute
ghd using the full file path from anywhere. For convenience symlink
ghd to your
ln -s "$PWD/ghd" "$HOME/bin/ghd"
Make sure you have loaded relevant github credentials by setting the following environment variables. Get your own credentials by registering a new github oauth application. The values for application name, homepage url, application description, and authorization callback url do not matter for
ghd; pick your own values.
Authenticate yourself. If enabled, you will be asked for a 2-factor authentication code.
ghd authenticate <username>
Now execute the main command.
Usage: ghd <action> Source folder: .../github-data-cli Actions available in the source folder: authenticate contributors diff-contributors diff-help diff-stargazers diff help repositories-help repositories-json repositories-list repositories star stargazers unstar
- These scripts grew “organically”, starting from nothing. The first need was a function for shared credentials, then pagination, then caching, then then then. Don’t judge the code style too harshly, unless you have concrete suggestions in the form of a pull request ;)
