Manage your github repo as code!

Project description

Build Status PyPI Version Code Health Coveralls Report


Stop managing your github configuration through an UI like a mere human and do everything through beautiful config YAML files.

dothub allows you to declare your configuration in a config file and update it by just updating the file. This way you can configure your labels, collaborators, default repo and organization parameters and other as code and have them version controlled.

If you are not sure how to configure something through the config file just change it in the UI and sync it locally with your file, you will see the changes! Next time you wont need to do any clicks!


pip install dothub


The first time you run dothub it will run a wizard to help you configure your credentials.

Repository configuration

Retrieve locally:

$ dothub pull mariocj89/dothub
.dothub.repo.yml updated

This creates a file that represents your repo configuration

Updating from local changes:

dothub push mariocj89/dothub
+ root['collaborators']['dnaranjo89']
+ root['labels']['new-tag']
C root['hooks']['travis']['active'] (True -> False)
Apply changes? [Y/n]: Y

You can check the repo configuration in github. dnarnajo89 has been invited as a collaborator, travis hooks have been disabled and you have a new awesome “new-tag”

Organization Configuration

Retrieve locally:

dothub pull <org_name>

Updating from local changes:

dothub push <org_name>

Updating all repositories within an organization

You can update all the repositories of an organization from your .dothub.repo.yml file.

To make a repo configuration be a template for all the repositories of your org you can use dothub as follows:

dothub pull <org/repo>
dothub push --bulk org/*

Note that some repository specific options like the name or the description will be ignored on the update.

Future features

This is justa prototype, dothub aims to be the configuration tool for your whole github see here for the features that are going to come available soon.


How can I retriger the reconfigure step?

Just run dothub configure

How can I use the tool if I am need to provide a custom SSL certificate?

Pass the envvar REQUESTS_CA_BUNDLE=YOURCERTPATH.cer before running dothub

I don’t want the tool to manage a part of the config

Just remove that part! If there is full section missing (hooks, options, members, etc.). It will be ignored
