GitHub to Keybase Cloner
This app enables you to set a webhook in a GitHub repo which will mirror to Keybase any pushes to
- No need to sweat if GitHub goes down, you can continue to work off your keybase repo
- Free backup of your code
How it works:
GitHub webhooks have a 10 second timeout, so the webhook calls an AWS Lambda function that populates an Amazon SQS queue. Then, a second AWS Lambda function is automatically invoked and performs the cloning and pushing to Keybase.
- Use 'npm install serverless -g' in the command line if your don't already have it installed
- You should have an AWS account and have downloaded the AWS CLI tool
All of this should fall within the AWS free tier!
Setup is as simple as running an install script and then enabling a webhook.
node setup.js --paperkey="this is my paper key" --username=yourUsername --keybaseRepoURI=keybase://type/yourUsername/keybaseRepoName
After the deploy has finished you should see something like:
Random Github Webhook Secret: 69jzxwsylp9iu2nmhzykpp Github Webhook URL: https://si2ymypm5a.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/webhook/?paperkey=this%20is%20my%20paper%20key&username=yourUsername&keybaseRepoURI=keybase://type/yourUsername/keybaseRepoName
- Configure your webhook in your GitHub repo settings
NOTE: Make sure your "Content Type" is set to "application/json"
- Optional: Set up SSH key for private Github Repositories
In the folder named ".ssh" in your project directory place the ssh key you use for github. Make sure it's named "id_rsa."
If your Git repo uses cutting edge Git LFS technology, unfortunately, Keybase does not support the Large File Storage standard. What will happen is it will push only the LFS metadata without replicating any of the file contents.
