The github package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

The GitHub API provides programmatic access to the full GitHub Web site, from Issues to Gists to repos down to the underlying git data like references and trees. This library wraps all of that, exposing a basic but Haskell-friendly set of functions and data structures.

For supported endpoints see GitHub module.

 import qualified GitHub as GH

 main :: IO ()
 main = do
     possibleUser <- GH.executeRequest' $ GH.userInfoR "phadej"
     print possibleUser

For more of an overview please see the README: https://github.com/phadej/github/blob/master/README.md

Build Status Hackage Stackage LTS 5 Stackage Nightly

The Github API v3 for Haskell.

Some functions are missing; these are functions where the Github API did not work as expected. The full Github API is in beta and constantly improving.

Installation

In your project's cabal file:

-- Packages needed in order to build this package.
Build-depends:       github

Or from the command line:

cabal install github

Example Usage

See the samples in the samples/ directory.

Documentation

For details see the reference documentation on Hackage.

Each module lines up with the hierarchy of documentation from the Github API.

Request functions (ending with R) construct a data type with can be executed in IO by executeRequest functions. They are all listed in the root GitHub module.

IO functions produce an IO (Either Error a), where a is the actual thing you want. You must call the function using IO goodness, then dispatch on the possible error message. Here's an example from the samples:

Many function have samples under samples/ directory.

{-# LANGUAGE NoImplicitPrelude #-}
{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}

import Prelude.Compat

import Data.Text         (Text, pack)
import Data.Text.IO as T (putStrLn)
import Data.Monoid       ((<>))

import qualified GitHub.Endpoints.Users.Followers as GitHub

main :: IO ()
main = do
    possibleUsers <- GitHub.usersFollowing "mike-burns"
    T.putStrLn $ either (("Error: " <>) . pack . show)
                        (foldMap ((<> "\n") . formatUser))
                        possibleUsers

formatUser :: GitHub.SimpleUser -> Text
formatUser = GitHub.untagName . GitHub.simpleUserLogin

Test setup

To run integration part of tests, you'll need github access token Token is needed, because unauthorised access is highly limited. It's enough to add only basic read access for public information.

With travis encrypt --org --repo yournick/github "GITHUB_TOKEN=yourtoken" command you get a secret, you can use in your travis setup to run the test-suite there.
