The GitHub Gem
This gem'll work hand-in-hand with GitHub's API to help you out.
Catch us in the #github room on freenode if you want to get involved. Or just fork and send a pull request.
Getting started
$ gem install github
Run it:
$ github <command> <args>
Pulling Changes
Let's say you just forked `github-gem` on GitHub from defunkt.
$ git clone git://
$ cd github-gem
$ github pull defunkt
This will setup a remote and branch for defunkt's repository at master.
In this case, a 'defunkt/master' branch.
If defunkt makes some changes you want, simply `github pull defunkt`. This will
leave you in the 'defunkt/master' branch after pulling changes from defunkt's
remote. After confirming that defunkt's changes were what you wanted, run `git
checkout master` and then `git merge defunkt/master` to merge defunkt's changes
into your own master branch. In summary:
$ github pull defunkt
$ git checkout master
$ git merge defunkt/master
If you've already reviewed defunkt's changes and just want to merge them into your
master branch, use the `merge` flag:
$ github pull --merge defunkt
- defunkt
- maddox
- halorgium
- kballard
