Build Status


This will enable you to automatically generate an authorized_keys file based on members of a GitHub organization.


Usually you will want this as a global gem:

$ gem install github_authorized_keys


Once installed, you will have a binary that you can use:

$ github_authorized_keys

By default, it will search for a configuration in your home folder ~/.github_authorized_keys.yml. If you would like to use an alternative, simply pass it along on the command line:

$ github_authorized_keys my_github_authorized_keys.yml

The executable will output to STDOUT, so if you would like to do this is cron for example:

@daily github_authorized_keys > /home/deploy/.ssh/authorized_keys


The format looks like so:

organization: 'my-organization'
oauth_token: 'github-oauth-token'
  - '# a comment'
  - 'ssh-rsa 1'

  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
