GitHub Interface - an awesome command line tool

Description

Simple command line tool created to automate the repetitive GitHub operations I perform regularly.

Installation

Developer (you want to contribute)

If you'd like to contribute to the repo:

  1. clone down the repo

    git clone git@github.com:phillipalexander/ghi.git
  2. cd to the root directory of the project

    cd ./ghi
  3. use npm-link to create a local link to the github repo so that you can develop on it more effectively

    npm link
  4. start hacking!

Basic (you just want it to work)

If you're not insterested in contributing right now, just use npm to install ghi:

$ npm install -g ghi

Configuration

To use the ghi tool, you must configure the config.json file in the root directory. To do so, run any of the commands below and follow the instructions when prompted.

The default configuration file contains the following:

{
  "github": {
    "token": "OAUTH_TOKEN",
    "webhook": "WEBHOOK_CONFIG_OBJECT"
  },
  "settings": {
    "openurls": false
  }
}
