Fetching Github Repo info with Node.js

A very simple node.js module for fetching information about a Github Repo. This was developed as a helper to a project of mine, and should probably be fixed up and made more robust.

Installing

Clone the repo

cd ~/my/node-project/
git clone git://github.com/mikaelbr/node-repo-github.git

You'll now have a folder called node-repo-github/ in your node-project/. You could rename directory and or move it, if you'd like.

How to use

Firstly you need to require the module. Given the structure above this would be

var githubrepo = require('./node-repo-github/githubrepo.js');

Methods

Now you're ready to use it. As per now, this module only has one method; open. This finds a repo based on user and repo name.


githubrepo.open(username, repo, callback)

Parameters

  1. username – The username of the repo owner
  2. repo – Full repository name
  3. callback – Function to be invoked once there's data

Callback

The callback should look like this

function (err, data) {}

Where err is the error notice and data is the Github response.

Example

// Require module. Edit path to match your structure
var githubrepo = require("../githubrepo.js");

// Look for repo and set callback to log data found
githubrepo.open("mikaelbr", "node-repo-github", function (err, data) {
    if (err) throw err;

    // Log results
    console.log(data);
});
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
