Manage your github repo as code!

Project description

Build Status PyPI Version


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 repo pull
.dothub.repo.yml updated

This creates a file that represents your repo configuration

Updating from local changes:

dothub repo push
+ 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. dnarnaj89 has been invited as a collaborator, travis hooks have been disabled and you have a new awesome “new-tag”

Organization Configuration

Retrieve locally:

dothub org pull

Updating from local changes:

dothub repo push

Updating all repositories within an organization

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

You can just do dothub repo pull from a repo with the default configuration and then dothub org repos to configure all the repositories. Note that some repository specific options like the name or the description will be ignored on the update.

Targeting a different repo from the current workspace

By default dothub will assume you want to work with the repo that your workspace is in or the organization of repo for the current tracking branch in case of organization commands but this can be overriden through some parameters.

dothub repo --owner=org_name --repository=repo_name pull

dothub org --name=org_name pull

dothub repo --owner=org_name --repository=repo_name push

dothub org --name=org_name push

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 my webhooksi a part of the config

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