Giggity - grab hierarchical data about a github organization, user, or repo
Get information about an organization, user, or repo on github. Stores all data in a json file, organized in a tree of dictionaries for easy database transfer or data analysis. All done through the github api, with or without authentication (authentication highly recommended).
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
giggity.py [-h] [-v] [-a] [-u] [-o] [-O OUTPUT] path positional arguments: path name of organization or user (or url of repository) optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -v, --verbose increase output verbosity -a, --authenticate allows github authentication to avoid ratelimiting -u, --user denotes that given input is a user -o, --org denotes that given input is an organization -O OUTPUT, --outfile OUTPUT location to put generated json file
Example of Scraping a User
python3 giggity.py -a -O needmorecowbell.json -v -u needmorecowbell
- This will ask for authentication credentials, put the program into verbose mode, scrape github for the user needmorecowbell, then put the results into needmorecowbell.json
Example of Scraping an Organization
python3 giggity.py -a -o github -O github.json
- This will ask for authentication, scrape the github organization on github, then put out the results in github.json
Giggity as a Module
- giggity can also be used as a module -- all data is stored within orgTree as a nested dict.
from giggity import giggity g = giggity("username","password") data = g.getUsers("organization-name", followers=True) print("List of users in organization: ") for user, info in data.items(): print(user) data = g.getEmails("username", verbose=True) # Get any emails found
Other examples of how to use giggity are available in the util folder.
