Locking, unlocking shared resource handler for lita.io.


Add lita-locker to your Lita instance's Gemfile:

gem "lita-locker"


Optional attributes

  • per_page - The number of items to show at once when listing labels or resources. Default: 10


Lita.configure do |config|
  config.handlers.locker.per_page = 3


lita-locker allows you to define resources (such as a server, or Git repo), and labels (such as "production"). Labels can have multiple resources, and resources can be referenced by multiple labels. A label can only be locked if all of the resources it uses are available.

steal web               - Make yourself the owner of something locked by someone else
