PyPI version License

Get a list of email IDs of any valid GitHub user from one function call even if there are no public emails for that user

It checks for all the public commits of the user and if the name of the author of commit is same as the name of user, it fetches that email ID.

Installation

Using pip

pip install github_email

Using Git

git clone https://github.com/prabhakar267/github_email.git
cd github_email
python setup.py install

Usage

import github_email

# get JSON response for user
response = github_email.get(<username>, <max_limit>)

if response['success']:
    # prints a list of emails retrieved from public commits of user 
    print response['email']
else:
    # prints the error message related to any error that occured
    print response['message']
