Repocribro is web application allowing users to register their GitHub repository so they can be managed, searched, browsed, tested, etc. (depends on used extensions) with the site. Main idea is to provide simple but powerful modular tool for building groups of GitHub repositories which are developed by different users and organizations.

Cribro means sieve in Italian language (origins in Latin word cribrum). This project provides tool for intelligent sifting repositories, information about them and its contents.

Typical use cases of Repocribro:

  • Community - repositories hub of examples / projects related to the community (methodology, standards, ...)
  • Courses - gathering and evaluating homeworks
