Gather repository information from GitHub hosted repositories.

Note: Telegraf also contains the webhook input which can be used as an alternative method for collecting repository information.


  ## List of repositories to monitor
  repositories = ["influxdata/telegraf"]

  ## Github API access token.  Unauthenticated requests are limited to 60 per hour.
  # access_token = ""

  ## Timeout for HTTP requests.
  # http_timeout = "5s"

      • name - The repository name
      • owner - The owner of the repository
      • language - The primary language of the repository
      • license - The license set for the repository
    • fields:
      • stars (int)
      • forks (int)
      • open_issues (int)
      • size (int)
