## Usage

### Autotagg Utility

Automatically tag repos according to their meta data. By default, it prints a list of suggested commands instead of actually modifying the data.

# Run on a repo
autotagg owner/name

# Run on all existing repos
autotagg -a|--all

# Get my repos from Github and run on them
autotagg -g GITHUB_ACCOUNT

# Get my repos and also my starred repos from Github and run on them
autotagg -g GITHUB_ACCOUNT --starred

# Get top1k repos from Github and run on them
autotagg --top1k

Then to apply commands printed by `autotagg`, just pipe it to `tagg`

autotag -a > pending_review.txt
cat pending_review.txt | tagg

For more details option list please see --help of autotagg

##### Autotagg Definition File

A json file that defines autotag criterias. Let's explain it with an example:

"default_type": "general",
"brands": {
"twitter": [
"framework": [
"python": [

This defines three tags:

* "brands/twitter" tag to be placed when the repo owner is "twbs" or "twitter"
* "general/framework" tag to be placed when the repo name is exactly "django"
* "general/python" tag to be placed when the repo name starts with "py" or the keyword "python" shows up anywhere in the repo name or the repo description
