Identify contributors of a repo, given their organization

Project description

Github Contributor Matcher

Imagine you work at a company that has a lot of open source committers in many many projects. And now imagine you're responsible for the happys of some users that may use some of those projects. At times you might want to answer the question: "HEY! I work at <org>! Maybe there's someone at <org> who is working on <project>/<repository> that I can talk to about <repository>!"

This script attempts to answer that question.



  • Python 3
  • Pip
  • A github account with a personal access token exported to the GITHUB_TOKEN environmental variable
  • A sense of wonder and curiosity

Want this to work? Follow the directions below. Doesn't work? File an issue.


pip install github_contributor_matcher


Generate a personal access token via Github's Settings - Developer Settings - Personal Access Token page. Grant the token "repo" and "user". Export the token as an environmental variable "GITHUB_TOKEN":

export GITHUB_TOKEN=your_new_token

Confirm the token is set by echoing its value when running echo $GITHUB_TOKEN.


contributor_matcher <organization> <project> <repository>

example: contributor_matcher openshift kubernetes kubernetes would print all users in the kubernetes/kubernetes project that are associated to the "openshift" organization in github.
