Github Stars as bookmarks

This retrieves github starred repos' URLs of a given user and exports them as HTML bookmarks export file, so that you can import it to your browser or your any favorite online bookmarking sites which supports HTML file imports.


Tip: Head over to and get started.

To use this in a node, use module.js file, require the module file and use getAllStarredRepos function:

getAllStarredRepos('username-here',function(err,html) {
    if(err) {
        console.log("Error: " + err);

    // You have your bookmarks html content in html variable
    // You can save it or use it however you like

For using this in browser, we have converted this module using browserify. Just download bookmark-github-stars-browser.js file and use it the same way you may use with node. After including this with script tag, you can use this with like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="bookmark-github-stars-browser.js"></script>

bookmarkGithubStars.getAllStarredRepos(user, function(err, data) {

    if (err) {
        // An error
        console.log("There is an error");

    // You have your bookmarks html content in html variable
    // You can save it or use it however you like


Check index.html for example.


The main file is module.js which contains the source code.

To generate the browser js file, use the below code.

If you do not have browserify install, download it first, else skip this step.

npm install -g browserify

Now generate bookmark-github-stars-browser.js using module.js file:

browserify module.js --standalone bookmarkGithubStars -o bookmark-github-stars-browser.js


You can’t perform that action at this time.
