GitHub Issues Mirror
This project allows you to provide a read-only mirror for your GitHub issues which brings several advantages:
- Data ownership
- Better for SEO in case not all of your GitHub issues are indexed by Google
- In case GitHub is down you can still access your issues
Try it, it's easy to setup! No database needed
git clone email@example.com:matomo-org/github-issues-mirror.git
curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
php composer.phar install
npm run compileCSS
cp config/config.example.php config/config.php
Make sure to point your vhost to
src/tmp and the
src/data directories have to be writable.
Import issues from GitHub
cd src/tasks && php import_github_issues.php
You may want to setup a cronjob to import the issues regularly. The first time you run the importer you might run into the Rate Limit. In such a case just execute the script an hour later again. As conditional requests are used it should fetch only changed and not already imported issues the next time. Meaning after executing this script often enough you should no longer run into the rate limit.
All issues are stored as JSON on the file system in src/data:
- There is one JSON file for each issue in src/data/issues. To not end up having too many files in one directory they are split into subdirectories from 1 to 100. Otherwise the file names are equal to the issue number: 1875.json = Issue 1875.
- There is one JSON file for each page in src/data/pages.
1.json=== Page 1,
2.json=== Page 2, ...
