Release History

  • [1.2]

    • Better notifications
    • Updates on watcher count
  • [1.1]

    • Receive notifications when someone starts watching any of your repositories.

Patches / bugs welcome. To get setup for development, be sure to run git submodule init && git submodule update to pull down the latest CocoaREST and EMKeychain files


Releases are done by myself, so "release" configuration requires my private key for code-signing. If you'd like to compile and run your own release build go to project settings and under "release" configuration, remove scary-robot-development and either leave blank or use your own key


  • Sparkle integration (or Mac App store... debating)
  • New notifications:
    • New forks of your repositories
    • New issues added to your repositories
