Export Github repository issues to markdown files: https://github.com/mattduck/gh2md.
Dump issues for a Github repository into a single markdown file.
There are various other projects that handle Github issue exports (Eg. offline-issues), but I couldn’t find one that writes all issues, comments and metadata to a single readable file.
An example exported file is included in the examples directory.
Default behaviour is to export all issues and open PRs. Closed PRs are ignored.
Run export for pope/ob-go, prompting for login to mygithubuser:
gh2md pope/ob-go ob-go.md --login mygithubuser
Run export for sarabander/sicp, passing in token:
gh2md sarabander/sicp sicp.md --token myAPItoken
Run export for paulirish/git-open, pulling token from environment:
export GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN=myAPItoken gh2md paulirish/git-open git-open.md
Run export for shezadkhan137/required, pulling token from file:
echo myAPItoken > ~/.github-token gh2md shezadkhan137/required required.md
$ gh2md -h usage: gh2md [-h] [-l LOGIN_USER] [-t TOKEN] repo outpath Export Github repository issues and comments into a single markdown file. https://github.com/mattduck/gh2md. Credentials are resolved in the following order: - The --login flag always takes precedence and will prompt for this user. - The --token flag. - A `GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN` environment variable. - An API token stored in `~/.github-token`. positional arguments: repo Github repo to export, in format "owner/repo_name". outpath Path to write exported issues. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l LOGIN_USER, --login LOGIN_USER Prompt to login as this Github user. If provided, this takes precedence over any token found in the environment. If not provided and no token is found, you will be prompted to login as the repository owner. -t TOKEN, --token TOKEN Automatically login with this Github API token. If --login is provided, this is ignored.
pip install gh2md. Alternatively, clone the repository and run make install.
- Improve performance. Currently fetching issues using PyGithub is slow - I assume it’s possible to bulk-fetch most of the data.
- Add flag to toggle inclusion of images.
- Add arg(s) to control which data is exported - open/closed, issues/PRs.
- Support 2FA login - currently if 2FA is enabled on your account you must setup an access token.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
