reviewthis is a simple Sinatra app that parses github commit messages and sends email notifications based on their contents. We use it to request code reviews from other team members.
If a commit message includes the hash
#reviewthis, any github user (signified by
@username) will get an email (if they have a public email address in their github profile). Also, any email address included gets an email as well. An example commit:
git commit -am 'I fixed that one nasty bug. #reviewthis @supermatter email@example.com'
To use it, just set a Post-Receive URL for your repo to
http://reviewth.is/ and You're all set!.

git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:supermatter/reviewthis.git cd reviewthis/ heroku create heroku addons:add sendgrid:starter git push heroku master
Now, just take the app name that heroku created for you, and set it as a Post-Receive URL for your repo. You're all set!
If you don't want to use Heroku, you'll have to adjust the smtp config values in the production environment. Otherwise, it should work out of the box.
Besides Sinatra, reviewthis requires
Note that the sendgrid add-on limits you to 200 messages per day.
