A Python interface for Github's user contribution system
>>> from github_contributions import GithubUser >>> user = GithubUser('bcongdon') >>> print(user.contributions().today()) Day(date=datetime.date(2017, 7, 15), count=2, level=1)
$ pip install githubcontributions $ python >>> import github_contributions
The Github Data API does not provide data on the contribution graphs for users. While you can get fine-grained details on the stats of specific repositories, there is not currently an API for a user's overall contributions.
Calculating a user's contributions by aggregating their repositories is expensive, and can require a prohibitive number of API calls.
github_contributions can fetch an entire year of contribution data in 1 request.
github_contributions exposes user contribution data (i.e. the sum of commits, issues created, and PRs reviewed per day), and also exposes Github's 'contribution level' data (the colors displayed on the contribution graph).
Getting a User's Contribution History
from github_contributions import GithubUser user = GithubUser('bcongdon') contribs = user.contributions() print(contribs.days) # Day(date=datetime.date(2016, 7, 10), count=6, level=1) contribs_2016 = user.contributions(start_date='2016-01-01', end_date='2016-12-31') print(sum([day.count for day in contribs_2016.days])) # 1509
Getting a User's Current Streak
from github_contributions import GithubUser user = GithubUser('bcongdon') streak = user.current_streak() print(len(streak)) # 501 print(streak.date) # 2016-03-02)
Getting a User's Past Streaks
from github_contributions import GithubUser user = GithubUser('sindresorhus') contributions = user.contributions() streaks = contributions.streaks() print(len(streaks)) # 30 print(streaks[-1].date) # 2017-07-15
