CLI support tool for GitHub repo maintainers

Project description

PyPI Downloads Latest PyPI version License

Command line tool to help you in the role of an Open Source project maintainer on GitHub.

  • Reads MAINTAINERS file to find repositories you are responsible for

  • Allows listing open issues and pull requests


One could argue that the GitHub “watch” feature (+ notifications) should be enough to get along, but what if I want to watch many repositories but only maintain a few?

GitHub has no notion of a “project maintainer”, therefore we use the convention of putting a MAINTAINERS file in the root of each git repository.

Each person listed in the MAINTAINERS file is responsible for managing issues, pull requests and keeping code quality.

This tool should support you as a maintainer in doing so easily from the command line.


$ sudo pip3 install -U github-maintainer
$ github-maintainer configure      # initial setup
$ github-maintainer repositories   # list my repos
$ github-maintainer issues         # list my issues
$ github-maintainer pull-requests  # list my PRs
$ github-maintainer patch 'myorg/.*' Dockerfile 'openjdk:8.*' openjdk:8-123  # replace patterns

Running Unit Tests

$ python3 test --cov-html=true
