github-asana

github-asana is a little web server written in node.js / express.js that integrates GitHub with Asana (the project management app). The server listens for GitHub Post-Receive Hooks, and sends commit messages as comments in Asana Tasks.

http://asana.com/

Installation

You need need to set the ASANA_KEY environment variable to your Asana API Key.

Once that's set, git-asana depends on express.js and require.js. To get started locally:

To run on Heroku is even easier:

Once you have this hosted, you need to set up GitHub's Service Hook. Go to your repositories "Admin", then click "Service Hooks" followed by "WebHook URLs". Add a URL for your newly hosted server. github-asana responds to POST requests at the root (or /) of the URL where your app is hosted.

Multiple users & API keys

To have each developer's commit comments appear as coming from their own Asana account, you can use the ASANA_USERS environment variable:

heroku config:add ASANA_USERS='[{"username":"GitHubUsername1", "key":"XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"}, {"username":"GitHubUsername2", "key":"XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"}]'
ASANA_USERS='[{"username":"GitHubUsername1", "key":"XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"}, {"username":"GitHubUsername2", "key":"XXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"}]' node app.js

You'll need to maintain this map of GitHub usernames and Asana API keys as you add employees, but if a matching GitHub username is not found in ASANA_USERS or ASANA_USERS is not provided then the ASANA_KEY will be used as a fallback.

Commit Syntax

When committing, use one of the following verbs followed by an Asana task ID in your commit message (prefixed by a #):

To mark a task as complete Fix Fixes Fixed Fixing Close Closes Closed Closing

To only reference a task Addresses Addressing References Referencing Refs Ref Re See

To mark a task as incomplete Breaks Breaking Unfixes Unfixing Reopen Reopening Reopens Re-open Re-opens Re-opening

Commit messages may reference multiple task IDs: git commit -m "Fixed #123456789, breaks #5551212. References #3241"

Commit messages may also use any combination and order of verb and IDs... git commit -m "This fixed a few problems in #123,#456, and #555, also breaking #7 and #2. I suppose I should reference #99 and #98"

...as long as a verb comes before any IDs. git commit -m "I think #22 and #23 should be referenced" (This will not work)

The commit message will be attached to any referenced task ID, regardless of verbs or order.

The end of any sentence resets any verbs used earlier in the sentence: git commit -m "Fixed #123123, breaks #999. I should mention #7 too." (#7 is not broken like #999; it only receives a comment)

Task IDs in Asana are the strings of digits after the final slash in the url, visible when you're viewing a task.

Roadmap

In the future, we will be adding the ability to assign tasks and add tags to tasks, with syntax such as:

git commit -m "fixed bug #123456789 to:user@example.com tags:'in progress','feedback'"
