Working with repositories

For convenience, methods that require a repo argument may be passed in any of the following forms

  • "pengwynn/linked"
  • {:username => 'pengwynn', :name => 'linkedin'}
  • {:username => 'pengwynn', :repo => 'linkedin'}
  • instance of Repository

Show a repo

Octokit.repo("pengwynn/linkedin")
=> <#Hashie::Mash description="Ruby wrapper for the LinkedIn API" fork=false forks=1 homepage="http://bit.ly/ruby-linkedin" name="linkedin" open_issues=2 owner="pengwynn" private=false url="http://github.com/pengwynn/linkedin" watchers=36>

Authenticated requests

Some methods require authentication so you'll need to pass a login and an api_token. You can find your GitHub API token on your account page

client = Octokit::Client.new(:login => 'pengwynn', :token => 'OU812')
client.follow!('adamstac')
