@zulipbot is a GitHub workflow bot application for the Zulip organization and its repositories. Written in Node.js, the bot manages issues and pull requests in the repository in order to create a better workflow for Zulip contributors.

zulipbot's purpose is to work around various limitations in GitHub’s binary permissions and notifications systems to create a better workflow for our contributors. It allows anyone to perform issue triage (self-assigning and labeling issues), not just the core contributors trusted with full write access to the repository (which is the only model GitHub supports). Additionally, zulipbot monitors the activity of issues and pull requests, notifying contributors about new merge conflicts, continuous integration build results, inactivity, and more.


To install a copy of zulipbot on your own GitHub repository, please visit the Installation page on the zulipbot wiki.


If you're using the Zulip project configuration (./config/config-example.js), see zulipbot's usage instructions on the Zulip documentation.

If you're using your own custom configuration (./config/config.js is different from the Zulip project configuration), please visit the Commands page on the zulipbot wiki.


If you wish to contribute to zulipbot, please read our contributing guidelines for more information.
