PyGitHub is a Python (2 and 3) library to access the GitHub API v3. This library enables you to manage GitHub resources such as repositories, user profiles, and organizations in your Python applications.

Simple Demo

from github import Github

# First create a Github instance:
g = Github("user", "password")

# Then play with your Github objects:
for repo in g.get_user().get_repos():
    print repo.name
