  • github3.login has been simplified and split into two functions:

    • github3.login serves the majority use case and only provides an authenticated GitHub object.

    • github3.enterprise_login allows GitHub Enterprise users to log into their service.

  • GitHub#iter_followers was split into two functions:

    • GitHub#followers_of which iterates over all of the followers of a user whose username you provide

    • GitHub#followers which iterates over all of the followers of the authenticated user

  • GitHub#iter_following was split into two functions:

    • GitHub#followed_by which iterates over all of the users followed by the username you provide

    • GitHub#following which iterates over all of the users followed by the authenticated user

  • GitHub#iter_gists was split into three functions:

    • GitHub#public_gists which iterates over all of the public gists on GitHub

    • GitHub#gists_for which iterates over all the public gists of a specific user

    • GitHub#gists which iterates over the authenticated users gists

    • GitHub#organizations which iterates over the authenticated user’s organization memberships

  • GitHub#iter_subscriptions was split into two functions:

    • GitHub#subscriptions_for which iterates over an arbitrary user’s subscriptions

    • GitHub#subscriptions which iterates over the authenticated user’s subscriptions

  • GitHub#iter_starred was split into two functions:

    • GitHub#starred_by which iterates over an arbitrary user’s stars

    • GitHub#starred which iterates over the authenticated user’s stars

  • GitHub#user was split into two functions:

    • GitHub#user which retrieves an arbitrary user’s information

    • GitHub#me which retrieves the authenticated user’s information

  • GitHub#update_user has been renamed to GitHub#update_me and only uses 1 API call now. It was renamed to reflect the addition of GitHub#me.

    • GitHub#subscribe

    • GitHub#unsubscribe

    • GitHub#is_subscribed

  • GitHub#create_repo was renamed to GitHub#create_repository

  • GitHub#delete_key was removed. To delete a key retrieve it with GitHub#key and then call Key#delete.

    • Repository#ignore ignores notifications from the repository for the authenticated user

  • Repository#contents was split into two simpler functions

    • Repository#file_contents returns the contents of a file object

    • Repository#directory_contents returns the contents of files in a directory.

  • Organization#add_repo and Team#add_repo have been renamed to Organization#add_repository and Team#add_repository respectively.

  • Organization#create_repo has been renamed to Organization#create_repository. It no longer accepts has_downloads. It now accepts license_template.

  • Organization#remove_repo has been renamed to Organization#remove_repository. It now accepts team_id instead of team.

  • github3.ratelimit_remaining was removed

  • GitHub instances can no longer be used as context managers

  • The pull request API has changed.

    • The links attribute now contains the raw _links attribute from the API.

    • The merge_commit_sha attribute has been removed since it was deprecated in the GitHub API.

    • To present a more consistent universal API, certain attributes have been renamed.

    • The comments attribute which provided the number of comments on a gist, has been renamed to comments_count.

    • The is_public method has been removed since it just returned the Gist.public attribute.

  • Most instances of login as a parameter have been changed to username for clarity and consistency. This affects the following methods:

    • github3.authorize

    • github3.repositories_by

    • github3.user

    • GitHub

    • GitHub#authorize

    • GitHub#follow

    • GitHub#is_following

    • Organization#remove_member

    • Repository#add_collaborator

    • Repository#is_assignee

    • Repository#is_collaborator

    • Repository#remove_collaborator

    • Team#add_member

    • Team#is_member

    • User#is_assignee_on

    • User#is_following

  • Repository.stargazers is now Repository.stargazers_count (conforming with the attribute name returned by the API).

  • The Issue API has changed in order to provide a more consistent attribute API. Issue.comments is now Issue.comments_count and returns the number of comments on an issue.

  • The Issue.labels attribute has also been renamed. It is now available from Issue.original_labels. This will provide the user with the list of Label objects that was returned by the API. To retrieve an updated list of labels, the user can now use Issue#labels, e.g.

    i = github3.issue('sigmavirus24', 'github3.py', 30)
    labels = list(i.labels())
  • The Organization and User APIs have changed to become more consistent with the rest of the library and GitHub API. The following attribute names have been changed

Old name

New attribute name

Organization.followers

followers_count

Organization.following

following_count

Organization.public_repos

public_repos_count

User.followers

followers_count

User.following

following_count

User.public_repos

public_repos_count

  • The Release.assets attribute has been renamed to Release.original_assets. To retrieve up-to-date assets, use the Release#assets method.

  • The Authorization API has changed. The update method has been split into three methods: add_scopes, remove_scopes, replace_scopes. This highlights the fact that Authorization#update used to require more than one request.

  • Event#is_public has been removed. Simply check the event’s public attribute instead.

  • Repository#delete_file and Repository#update_file have been removed. Simply delete or update a file using the Contents API.

  • Content#delete now returns a dictionary that matches the JSON returned by the API. It contains the Contents and the Commit associated with the deletion.

  • Content#update now returns a dictionary that matches the JSON returned by the API. It contains the Contents and the Commit associated with the deletion.

  • Issue.pull_request has been renamed to Issue.pull_request_urls

New Features

  • Most objects now have a session attribute. This is a subclass of a Session object from requests. This can now be used in conjunction with a third-party caching mechanism. The suggested caching library is cachecontrol.

  • All object’s url attribute are now available.

  • You can now retrieve a repository by its id with GitHub#repository_with_id.

  • You can call the pull_request method on an Issue now to retrieve the associated pull request:

    import github3
    
    i = github3.issue('sigmavirus24', 'github3.py', 301)
    pr = i.pull_request()
