frankly

Frankly is a summary dashboard about the open issues and PRs across any set of GitHub repositories. Because, frankly, we need one.

Installing and running the demo

git clone https://github.com/notwaldorf/frankly.git
cd frankly
bower install
python -m SimpleHTTPServer ## or your favourite local server

Sample use

This is what the index.html contains

<!-- HTML imports for Polymer element and the Web Components polyfill -->
<script src="bower_components/webcomponentsjs/webcomponents-lite.js"></script>
<link rel="import" href="frank-ly.html">

<!-- The whole dashboard -->
<frank-ly
    header="πŸš‚πŸšƒπŸšƒπŸ’¨"
    repos='["frankly", "emoji-rain", "emoji-selector", "github-canned-responses"]'
    labels='["bug", "enhancement"]'>
</frank-ly>

And that's literally it. It looks like this:

Configuring it

By default, the dashboard looks at the repositories under the authenticated user's username, however it can be configured to use an organization, or even a mix of repositories from different users and organizations:

All the repositories the user is subscribed to

<frank-ly header="πŸš‚πŸšƒπŸšƒπŸ’¨"
    labels='["bug", "enhancement"]'>
</frank-ly>

Repositories for a specific organization

<frank-ly
    organization="polymerelements"
    repos='["paper-input", "paper-button"]'
    labels='["bug", "enhancement"]'>
</frank-ly>

Repositories for a mix of users and organization

<frank-ly
    full-repo-names
    repos='["notwaldorf/emoji-rain", "notwaldorf/caturday-post", "polymerelements/paper-input", "jquery/jquery"]'
    labels='["bug", "enhancement"]'>
</frank-ly>

You can also configure which labels you want to display. Untriaged is always the open issues that have no labels applied to them.

Multiple dashboards in parallel

To use multiple dashboards for the same user, just use the <frankly-header> element directly, with multiple <frankly-result> elements. A dom-bind is a special Polymer construct that allows you to easily bind data together (in this case, the authenticated user:

<!-- HTML imports for Polymer element and the Web Components polyfill -->
<script src="bower_components/webcomponentsjs/webcomponents-lite.js"></script>
<link rel="import" href="frankly-header.html">
<link rel="import" href="frankly-results.html">

<template is="dom-bind">
  <frankly-header
    header="Look at this dashboard go!"
    github-user="{{user}}"></frankly-header>
  <frankly-results
      github-user="[[user]]"
      repos='["emoji-rain", "emoji-translate"]'
      labels='["bug", "enhancement"]'>
  </frankly-results>
  <frankly-results
      github-user="[[user]]"
      full-repo-names
      repos='["notwaldorf/caturday-post", "polymerelements/paper-input", "jquery/jquery"]'
      labels='["bug", "enhancement", "help wanted"]'>
  </frankly-results>
</template>

Private repos?

At the moment Frankly only works for public repos, since it's requesting the least amount of permissions from GitHub -- my understanding is that the permissions needed to access anything about private repos require read/write access to all of that organization's repos, which is a bit scary.

Deploying it somewhere?

Frankly uses Firebase to authenticate to GitHub. The Firebase app that I've included lets you run the app locally, but won't work once you deploy it to your own domain. In that case, all you have to do is create your own Firebase and GitHub apps (make sure to update your GitHub secrets into the Firebase app) and update the Firebase settings in frankly-header:

<firebase-auth provider="github" id="githubAuth"
  location="https://<your-app-name-here>.firebaseio.com"
  user="{{githubUser}}">
</firebase-auth>
