VERSION

This document describes version 0.006 of App::GitHubUtils (from Perl distribution App-GitHubUtils), released on 2020-12-24.

DESCRIPTION

This distribution provides the following command-line utilities related to GitHub:

FUNCTIONS

create_this_repo_on_github

Usage:

 create_this_repo_on_github() -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Create this repo on github.

This is a convenient no-argument-needed command to create GitHub repository of the current ("this") repo. Will use github-cmd from App::github::cmd to create the repository. To find out the repo name to be created, will first check .git/config if it exists. Otherwise, will just use the name of the current directory.

This function is not exported.

No arguments.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

git_clone_from_github

Usage:

 git_clone_from_github(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

git clone, with some conveniences.

Instead of having to type:

 % git clone git@github.com:USER/PREFIX-NAME.git

you can just type:

 % git-clone-from-github NAME

The utility will try the users specified in config file, as well as prefixes and clone the first repo that exists. You can put something like this in githubutils.conf:

 [prog=git-clone-from-github]
 users = ["perlancar", "perlancar2"]
 prefixes = ["perl5-", "perl-"]
 suffixes = ["-p5"]

The utility will check whether repo in these URLs exist:

 git@github.com:perlancar/perl5-NAME.git
 git@github.com:perlancar/perl-NAME.git
 git@github.com:perlancar/NAME-p5.git
 git@github.com:perlancar2/perl5-NAME.git
 git@github.com:perlancar2/perl-NAME.git
 git@github.com:perlancar2/NAME-p5.git

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • name* => str

  • prefixes => array[str]

  • suffixes => array[str]

  • users => array[str]

    If not specified, will use login from github-cmd.conf file.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)
