OctoHub: Low level Python and CLI interface to GitHub

OctoHub is a Python package that provides a low level interface to the full GitHub REST API:

OctoHub was developed out of a need to have a one-to-one interface to the GitHub API based on the excellent online documentation, with the least amount of abstraction.

OctoHub does do its part by parsing raw json responses into Pythonic attribute dictionaries, as well providing an optional iterative Pager for handling pagination.

Also included is a command line interface for quick interaction with GitHub's API.

Speaking of development, it's really easy to leverage the base code to develop higher level tools, see contrib for some examples. We also love pull requests, see our gitflow for guidelines and walk through.

Installation

On TurnKey Linux (v17+):

# as root
apt update
apt install octohub

On Debian (11/Buster+):

# check http://archive.turnkeylinux.org/debian/pool/bullseye/main/o/octohub/ for latest version
$ wget http://archive.turnkeylinux.org/debian/pool/bullseye/main/o/octohub/octohub_#VERSION#_amd64.deb
$ sudo apt install ./octohub_#VERSION#_amd64.deb
$ git clone https://github.com/turnkeylinux/octohub.git
$ cd octohub
$ sudo python3 setup.py install

Dependencies

GitHub Token

OctoHub can be used anonymously, but is much more useful when authenticated. You can create a revokable access token under `Personal access tokens`_ in your Account settings.

Usage examples (API)

>>> from octohub.connection import Connection
>>> conn = Connection(token)
>>> uri = '/repos/turnkeylinux/tracker/issues'

>>> response = conn.send('GET', uri, params={'labels': 'bug'})
>>> for issue in response.parsed:
...:    print(issue.title)

>>> from octohub.connection import Pager
>>> pager = Pager(conn, uri, params={'labels': 'bug'})
>>> for issues in pager:
...:    for issue in issues:
...:        print(issue.title)

Usage examples (CLI)

# A Personal Access Token from your GitHub account:
#   Account Settings > Developer settings > Personal access tokens > Generate new token

$ export OCTOHUB_TOKEN=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
$ export OCTOHUB_LOGLEVEL=INFO
$ octohub GET /repos/turnkeylinux/tracker/issues labels=feature,core per_page=100

INFO [response]: status: 200 OK
INFO [response]: x-ratelimit-limit: 5000
INFO [response]: x-ratelimit-remaining: 4997

$ cat repo.json
{
  "name": "test",
  "description": "My test project",
  "homepage": "http://www.turnkeylinux.org",
}
$ octohub POST /user/repos --input=repo.json

INFO [response]: status: 201 Created
