A simple PreactJS app that uses the GitHub search API to display repositories in a list.

Live site:

Build Status Code Climate


  • Search for github repositories by name.

  • Details like such as the number of forks, number of stars and a short description of each repository are shown.

  • The repositories can be sorted in ascending/descending order based on number of stars or forks or the last updated time.

Setup for Development

Please make sure that node js is setup on the dev machine by running the command below:

Run the command below to install the required dependenices:

npm install

To run the app on your local machine use the command below:

To deploy I run the build step and move the new js and css files to the docs folders which is the root GitHub pages folder. However please do not commit changes to the docs folders as I will do this manually.
