Build Status

This tool provides a cli and bitbar-plugin to check the devclose of any repository which has it defined in its description. This tool will look for a keyword in the description and interprets the devclose.


In order to activate the bitbar plugin, bitbar has to be installed. This can be installed with:

brew cask install bitbar




By calling without providing any flags, the cli will output following Strings, depending on the current devclose-status:

  • open: No devclose, free for development
  • closed: Devclose
  • unkown: There is no information about the devclose
  • unavailable: The repository is not available.

There are three flags to use:

  1. --json: provides full devclose information in the JSON-format
  2. --bitbar: provides the output in the bitbar-format
  3. --help: shows help


After the devclose-checker is installed, you should see a new icon (depending on the current devclose-status) in your bar which represents the status descibed in the CLI-section:

  • open
  • 🚫 closed
  • unkown
  • 💥 unavailable

Clicking on the icon will show you two more options:

  • Open the linkt to the official repository
  • Open the config file in VIM in order to change it


With the help of a configuration file which is named devclose_config.yml and is stored next to the CLI or bitbar-plugin binary in a config-folder, the following properties are customizable:

  • URL of the repo api

  • open and close indocator strings

  • emojis for each status

The configuration file looks like this:

repo_api: <repo api url> (required)
open_indicator: open (optional)
closed_indicator: close (optional)
emojis: (optional)
  open: ":white_check_mark:" (optional)
  closed: ":no_entry_sign:" (optional)
  unknown: ":question:" (optional)
  unavailable: ":boom:" (optional)

Only the URL of the Repo API is required. All other properties are optional. The example config file above shows also the default values for the optional properties.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
