A simple way to integrate GitHub Issues into Pivotal Tracker
NOTICE: I haven't used Tracker in over a year, so this project is dead. I'm not actively looking for a new maintainer, but if you want to take over, you're more than welcome.
Clone the repo
git clone https://github.com/jrostand/pivothub.git
Get an OAuth key from GitHub. Instructions are available here
Set up your deployment environment. I use Heroku personally (because you get SSL for free), but it should work equally well with other providers. Note that using SSL is highly recommended as otherwise your credentials will be transmitted in the clear.
cp config.json.example config.json
You'll need to edit
config.jsonto suit your needs. Explanations of the flags are in the file.
