📫 Get notified about new issues with specific label


  1. Run npm install -g github-label-notify
  2. Go to the IFTTT Maker Channel, activate the channel, and record your maker key.
  3. Duplicate the template IFTTT recipe - which uses the GMail channel - or setup a new IFTTT recipe that uses the Maker channel with event name new_github_issue as the trigger.
  4. Run glnotify setup and enter your IFTTT key.
  5. Run glnotify add to add repositories and labels to your watch list.
    • Alternatively, you can directly edit watch_list.json
  6. Run glnotify init to mark all current issues as 'read'. This is important. If you do not, running glnotify will spam you with a backlog of notifications.
  7. Run glnotify to start listening for new Github issues per your watchlist.
