Hubmaster is a rubygem that allows GitHub API interaction in Terminal. The current version only permit repository interactions (list, create, delete), but feel free to fork and contribute!
To use as a library, add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
To use as a command line tool, run:
sudo gem install hubmaster
The general form for executing commands is
hub repos --modifier [params]. All parameters that include spaces must be encased in quotes.
BEWARE: For the purposes of this document, when words are surrounded by brackets, the indicated value should be placed there without brackets.
To list all repositories under your account:
hub repos --list
To list all repositories under someone elses account:
hub repos --list [username]
To create a new repository:
hub repos --create [name] "[description]"
Additionaly this command can be run with no parameters and you will be prompted for them later.
To delete an existing repository:
hub repos --delete [name]
Andy you will be asked to confirm by typing the name of the repository specified.
To edit an existing repository:
hub repos --edit [name] -option [option dependent variable]
The edit command takes several parameters and can be kind of confusing. First you specify the name of the repository you would like to edit, followed by the part you would like to edit. Currently all that can be edited is the the description, so the '-option' would look like '-description'. Finally, you can either specify the change now or be prompted for it later.
REMEMBER: IF ANY PARAMETERS INCLUDE SPACES, THEY MUST BE ENCASED IN QUOTES
