Ghee

This is an unofficial ruby client for the GitHub API. The end goal is a complete, simple, and intuitive ruby API for all things Github.

Usage

Instantiate the client with basic auth:

gh = Ghee.basic_auth("rauhryan","password")

Instantiate the client with auth token:

gh = Ghee.access_token("1234oijgakjioewj1o4oij")

Create an OAuth access token:

user_name, password, scopes = "rauhryan", "secret", ["user","repos"]
token = Ghee.create_token(user_name, password, scopes)

Gists

Usage

List a user's gists:

gh.user('jonmagic').gists

List authenticated users gists:

gh.gists

List all public gists:

gh.gists.public

List the authenticated user's starred gists:

gh.gists.starred

Get a single gist:

gist_id = "1393990"
gh.gists(gist_id)

Create a gist (see docs for all possible params):

gh.gists.create({
  :description => 'Ghee'
  :public => true,
  :files => {
    'file1.txt' => {

    }
  }
})

Edit a gist:

gh.gists("1393990").patch({
  :files => {
    'gistfile1.md' => {
      :content => 'clarified I say'
    }
  }
})

Star a gist:

gh.gists("1393990").star

Unstar a gist:

Events

Usage

List public events:

gh.events

Pagination

Usage

Ghee fully supports pagination for anything that returns a list, for example repo issues.

gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 1) #=> returns first page of issues
gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 2) #=> returns page two of issues
gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 2).first_page #=> 1
gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 2).last_page #=> 4
gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 2).next_page #=> 3
gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.paginate(:per_page => 30, :page => 2).prev_page #=> 1

Ghee also provides a convienence method for all the pages

gh.repos("rauhryan","huboard").issues.all #=> return all the pages

Filtering parameters

Usage

Many of the api calls allow you to pass in additional paramters to filter and sort your data, for example issues provide

  • filter
    • assigned
    • mentioned
    • subscribed
    • created
  • state
    • open closed default
  • labels
    • list of labels comma delimited herp,derp
  • direction
    • asc or desc

These can all be passed into ghee through an options hash:

gh.repos("rauhryan", "huboard").issues(:state => "closed", :sort => "desc")

Note you can also change parameters with pagination!

gh.repos("rauhryan", "huboard").issues(:state => "closed").all

Testing

The test suite uses VCR to cache actual requests to the Github API in a directory called responses in the spec directory.

In order for VCR to make and cache the actual calls to the Github API you will need to copy spec/settings.yml.sample to spec/settings.yml and configure it with your GitHub username, either a GitHub access token or your GitHub password, a test repo for it to hit against (which you should setup ahead of time), and finally an organization you belong to (for the entire suite of tests to pass you have to belong to an org).

This file is ignored by git (see .gitignore) so you can commit any changes you make to the gem without having to worry about your user/token/pass/org being released into the wild.

Now run the test suite:

bundle
bundle exec rake

CONTRIBUTE

If you'd like to hack on Ghee, start by forking the repo on GitHub:

https://github.com/rauhryan/ghee

The best way to get your changes merged back into core is as follows:

  1. Clone down your fork
  2. Create a thoughtfully named topic branch to contain your change
  3. Hack away
  4. Add tests and make sure everything still passes by running bundle exec rake
  5. If you are adding new functionality, document it in the README
  6. Do not change the version number, we will do that on our end
  7. If necessary, rebase your commits into logical chunks, without errors
  8. Push the branch up to GitHub
  9. Send a pull request for your branch
