This is a provider for taskmapper. It provides interoperability with Github and its issue tracking system through the taskmapper gem.

Usage and Examples

First we have to instantiate a new taskmapper instance: github = TaskMapper.new(:github, => "coder", :token => "m4st3r!")

If you do not pass in the token and the username, it will only access public information for the account.

== Finding Projects(Repositories)

You can find your own projects by doing:

projects = github.projects # Will return all your repositories

projects = github.projects(['your_repo1', 'your_repo2']) project = github.project('your_repo')

Also you can access other users repos

project = github.project.find(:first, {:user => 'other_user', :repo => 'his_repo'})

Or even make a search with an array

projects = github.project.find(:all, ['ruby','git'])

== Finding Tickets(Issues)

tickets = project.tickets # All open issues tickets = project.tickets(:all, => 'closed') # All closed tickets ticket = project.ticket()

== Open Tickets

ticket = project.ticket!({:title => "New ticket", :body => "Body for the very new ticket"})

== Close a ticket

ticket = ticket.close

== Reopen a ticket

ticket = ticket.reopen

= Update a ticket

ticket.title = "New title"
ticket.body =  "New body"

== Finding Comments comments = ticket.comments

== Create Comment comment = ticket.comment!("your comment goes here")


  • rubygems (obviously)
  • taskmapper gem (latest version preferred)
  • jeweler gem (only if you want to repackage and develop)
  • Octopi gem provdes interface to Github

The taskmapper gem should automatically be installed during the installation of this gem if it is not already installed.

Other Notes

Since this and the taskmapper gem is still primarily a work-in-progress, minor changes may be incompatible with previous versions. Please be careful about using and updating this gem in production.

If you see or find any issues, feel free to open up an issue report.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so we don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself so we can ignore when I pull)
  • Send us a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
