This is a simple command-line interface to the facilities of GitHub. It is written by Christopher Brannon email@example.com. The current version is 0.1. This program is still in the early stage of development. It is by no means feature-complete. A friend and I consider it useful, but others may not.
Obtain the current stable version using this link: http://the-brannons.com/software/cligh-0.1.tar.gz. You can verify the integrity of the file using the gpg signature.
If you are using a version of Python prior to 2.7, you first need to install the argparse module. Get it from here. Python version 2.7 includes argparse in its standard library.
cligh also requires the python-github2 package. The homepage for python-github2 is here.
Once the dependencies are installed, type
./setup.py in the cligh source directory, in order to
install the script.
cligh will read your username and github token from git's configuration files, so you must set them before proceeding. These authenticate various operations, such as repository creation. See this description of the configuration process for more details. Here are the example commands which you should run, replacing the final arguments with your own username and token.
git config --global github.user NoSuchUser git config --global github.token 0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef
Usage is straightforward, and the program provides informative
help messages. Simply type
cligh -h at a shell prompt,
to see the introductory help message.
