Search your starred ★ repositories on GitHub from your terminal

npm npm GitHub

You know those repositories you like and star into the abyss? Yes those, this cli tool will help you do a fuzzy search on them. You can search any GitHub user's starred repositories by providing their handle only.

This tool will cache the results locally so that you don't risk abusing the API requests limit.

"Starred Search Demo"

Notice: This project is still in alpha and the API might change without notice. Update only after reviewing the changelog for breaking changes.

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • 🐧 Linux
  • 🍎 macOS
  • 📦 Node v12.x.x+

Setup

# Install
npm install starred_search -g

# Usage
starred_search --user 'link-' --find 'es6'

I recommend that you create an alias in your shell to avoid repeating the required parameters.

Example alias in fish and bash:

# Create an alias (this is temporary, you might want to make it permanent)
alias stars="starred_search --user 'link-'"

# Then you can use it as:
stars -f 'es6'

Usage

Usage: starred_search [OPTIONS] [ARGS]...

  -c, --cache-dir <directory>

Examples

    "repo_name": "lukehoban/es6features",
    "repo_description": "Overview of ECMAScript 6 features",
    "repo_url": "https://github.com/lukehoban/es6features",

Verbose output & override cache directory:

$ starred_search --user 'link-' --cache-dir '/tmp/.cache' --find 'es6' --verbose

  }
]

Parsing the output with jq You can pipe the standard output to be handled by tools like jq for more magic:

# Return the first search result only
$ starred_search -u 'link-' -f 'es6' | jq '.[0]'

{
  "repo_name": "lukehoban/es6features",
  "repo_description": "Overview of ECMAScript 6 features",
  "repo_url": "https://github.com/lukehoban/es6features",
  "repo_stars": 27672
}

# Return repo_name of every result element
starred_search -u 'link-' -f 'es6' | jq 'map(.repo_name)'
