all your github are belong to us
GitHub is a fantastic tool — I use it constantly. I'd like to understand more of how I work on GitHub, but I don't have all my data. I can setup an RSS hook on my public feed, but I do a lot of work on private repos as well.
This webapp is a simple data collector: add it to repos in question and it'll log everything you do on that repo into a MongoDB database. Each collection is named after the event type. Pretty cool, huh?
Simple, just run
script/bootstrap from your clone.
You might need to create a token. Run
script/generator and follow the
necessary prompts. Keep a record of this token — you'll need it for later
configuration. Hell, save it to a
.env file, why don't ya?
I use Heroku because I'm obsessed with how easy it is to use. I also use
because Go is freaking awesome. Download
run the following:
$ hk create my-github-log-app-thingy $ hk addon-add mongohq $ hk set GITHUB_USERNAME=your-username $ hk set GITHUB_TOKEN=abc123 $ hk set AYGABTU_URL=http://my-github-log-app-thingy.herokuapp.com
Then you'll have to tell your aggregator which events you care about. You can
view all the events here.
Now, take the events you want and construct a JSON array. Then, set a string'd
version of that as your
$ hk set GITHUB_HOOK_EVENTS='["push","pull_request"]' # just an example!
Then deploy your code:
$ git push heroku master
It's all in Mongo. Now it's your job to get and understand it.
API endpoints are still in progress. Wanna help? Check out issue #2.
