go-github-client: Github v3 API Client for Go
go-github-client is now superseded by google/go-github package released by Google.
go-github-client is a Go package that aims to smoothly integrate Github Rest API in Go applications.
WARNING: This software is alpha quality so use it at your risks ;-)
We've extracted and refactored this package from cocode.io, our real-time web collaborative code editor integrated with GitHub Gist. The package is currently under active development because we're enhancing the integration between cocode.io and GitHub.
To keep you updated about future development, please feel free to watch this project on GitHub and to follow us on:
Of course, we're looking forward for your feedback & patches :)
go get & go install
Download go-gothub-client and install go-github-client/client:
$ go get github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/client
This command clone all the repository in "$GOPATH/src/github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client" and install "github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/client" package in "$GOPATH/pkg/ARCH/github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/client.a"
Now you can "go install" all the other subpackage (or just what you want):
$ go install github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/users $ go install github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/gists $ go install github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/issues
go-github-client command line example applications
You can build and install some example applications using "go install":
$ go install github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/examples/gh_get_userinfo $ $GOPATH/bin/gh_get_userinfo ...
Create an authenticated GitHub API Client using Basic Authentication method
import ( ghclient "github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/client" ) ... ghc, _ := ghclient.NewGitHubClient("testuser", "password", AUTH_USER_PASSWORD)
Get information about the authenticated user
import ( ghusers "github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/users" ) usersc = ghusers.NewUsers(ghc) res, err := usersc.GetUserInfo(*userinfo) jr, err := res.Json() name := jr.GetString("login")
Paginate public gists
import ( ghgist "github.com/alcacoop/go-github-client/gists" ) gistsc = ghgists.NewUsers(ghc) res, err := gistsc.GetPublicGists() jr, err := res.Json() res2, err := res.NextPage() jr2, err := res.Json()
