😡 Python CLI tool that shows you who has unfollowed you on GitHub

Project description

Who Unfollowed Me

Python Implementation


Python CLI tool that shows you who has unfollowed you on GitHub.
Heavily inspired by msaaddev/who-unfollowed-me


PyPI - Downloads

pip install unfollow


The first time you run the tool, you will be asked to enter your GitHub username. Subsequent runs will show any unfollowers, with names and links.

I used this project to learn a lot about rich, thus I created numerous themes which you can use.

unfollow - colored text and some panels
unfollow panels - colored text inside panels
unfollow bubbles - all text inside beautiful bubbles - requires a nerd font
unfollow simple - no colors or emojis, just plain text and a table


As mentioned, msaaddev/who-unfollowed-me was the reason I created this project and has been a great reference. While I love the project, three things stood out to me that I wanted to improve in my own implementation:

  1. The data files for the tool are not hidden and are stored in your current directory rather than the home directory
  2. Output looks good but a huge amount is self promotion rather than actual relevant info. (Please don't get me wrong, everyone can self promote as much as they like, I'm just talking about what I wanted to improve)
  3. If the tool is run without internet connection, the file that stores the username is erased


Bubbles (w/nerd font)



  1. Clone the repo and cd into it:
