Star GitHub repos from the command line

Project description


Star GitHub repos from the command line.

# set the environment variables GH_UNAME and GH_TOKEN
# to your GitHub username and token/password

$ ghstar gokulsoumya/ghstar
Starred gokulsoumya/ghstar

(Because the command line is awesome, browsers are a hassle, and I'm lazy.)


ghstar is written in Python3, available on PyPI and installable via pip:

pip install ghstar


You must first set the environment variables GH_UNAME and GH_TOKEN to your GitHub username and token/password. It is recommended to use a token with public_repo scope instead of your password though either one works.

$ ghstar --help

usage: ghstar [-h] [-i] [-n SEARCH_COUNT] repo
