The Github API v3 for Haskell.
This is currently a read-only API. There is a
read-write branch with
ideas on how this can work for writing to Github, but I need ideas on how
authentication should work. You can help if you let me
know how you are using this library or how you
would like to use it, and which authentication method is best for you (HTTP
Some functions which do not require authentication are also missing; these are functions where the Github API did not work as expected. The full Github API is in beta and constantly improving.
In your project's cabal file:
-- Packages needed in order to build this package. Build-depends: github
Or from the command line:
cabal install github
See the samples in the samples/ directory.
For details see the reference documentation on Hackage. Later.
Each module lines up with the hierarchy of documentation from the Github API.
Each function has a sample written for it.
All functions produce an
IO (Either Error a), where
a is the actual thing you want. You must call the function using IO goodness, then dispatch on the possible error message. Here's an example from the samples:
import Github.Users.Followers import Data.List (intercalate) main = do possibleUsers <- usersFollowing "mike-burns" putStrLn $ either (\error -> "Error: " ++ $ show error) (intercalate "\n" . map githubUserLogin) possibleUsers
