This is a Leiningen plugin for creating and initializing a Github repository.

This is a lein 2 plugin. It will not work for lein 1, and I do not wish to support lein 1. Upgrade, grandpa.


Put [lein-gitify "0.1.0"] into the :plugins vector of your :user profile in ~/.lein/profiles.clj.

This plugin requires that you have set your Github username and password in your git config.

git config --get github.user
git config --get github.password

Github no longer supports token based authentication in its API, and we are thus required to use a password. If you don't want to store your password in your git config, please send me a pull request with a better idea for configuration that is equally as simplistic as setting a git config option.


This plugin only works in a project. When you create a new project, (with lein new for example), cd into that project and run lein gitify. This will create a Github repository under your account, run git init, and set up your origin remote to point to the new Github repo. If you pass the --init option, it'll do the following as well:

git add .
git commit -am 'First commit.'
git push origin master

Thus creating and pushing your first commit. It will not do this unless you pass the --init option.
