Infoboard is a simple GTK3 application for watching the activity of members of a Github organization.
Infoboard consists of two seperate pieces,
infoboard (the frontend) and
scraper (the Github-interfacing backend). Both must be running in order for
the GTK application to get new events, however
infoboard is not required to
run if another frontend (web, JSON, IRC bot, etc) is desired.
The settings are stored in settings.yaml and should look something like this:
user: password: organization: FOSSRIT events: 8 users: 1 repositories: 1 scale: 1 interval: 360 db_uri: sqlite:///knowledge.db
password should be set to your Github
username/password, if desired.
scraper can run without this, but it will
only be able to make 60 API calls per hour, and will not see any private
infoboard does not require this to be set.
organization is the Github organization you wish to track. It can be any
Github organization, however you will not necessarily see events from all users
of an organization you are not a part of.
repositories determine how the window is populated.
events defines the number of events present on the left side of the screen
at any given time.
repositories define how many spotlighted
users and repositories (respectively) appear on the right. These may be
tweaked independently for your device's screen and/or taste.
scale also tweaks the display, but this is simply a constant multiplier on
how large gravatars are scaled on the display.
interval is the time interval (in seconds) between refreshes of the display
db_uri is a URI for any database recognized by
