Tiny client for receiving and handling GitHub hook payloads
The main component is the Listener class defined in ghooklistener/listener.py.
In order to create a service that listens for events and performs certain tasks, an instance of this class needs to be created with a given name and a callback
handlefunc function will be called whenever a push event is received.
The function should return a boolean indicating success (True) or failure (False) and a message.
An example handler can be found in handlers/example.py. This handler simply prints the data it receives to stdout and reports success.
A more concrete example (and the reason for creating this project) is the cloner handler.
The cloner handler checks the branch ref and if it's master (
refs/heads/master), it initiates pull of the repository.
