Latest commit 3213858 @copitux 0.5.1: Upload to Pypi



Pygithub3 is a wrapper to the Github API v3, written in Python.

It has been developed with extensibility in mind, because the API is in a beta state, trying to achieve a very loosly coupled software.

It should be very easy to extend to support new requests and resources, because each of them are managed by itself.

Fast install

pip install pygithub3

Fast example

from pygithub3 import Github

gh = Github(login='copitux', password='password')

copitux = gh.users.get()
kennethreitz = gh.users.get('kennethreitz')

copitux_repos = gh.repos.list().all()
kennethreitz_repos = gh.repos.list('kennethreitz').all()



  • Oauth authorization API (service?)
  • Proxy methods into resources (e.g copitux.followers)
