How to find important information in github(with gitrob)

Today.. I write in “how to find important information in github(with gitrob)”. It’s a very simple article, just introduction…

Install and Github AccessToken Setting

First, download with go get!

go get

And let’s add go/bin in the rc file(.zshrf, .bashrc, etc…) for ease of use.

# ~/.zshrc

alias gitrob='your-go-path/bin/gitrob'

if you run this, need to github access token is required. This is essential because gitrob uses github api.

No GitHub access token given. Please provide via command line option or in the GITROB_ACCESS_TOKEN environment variable.

Open github’s settings and generate the access token.

Token grants only read access to the repo because it requires only that privilege. (I don’t need anything else.) When the token is issued, it puts a value in the environment variable called GITROB_ACCESS_TOKEN. Also, this is easy to manage from rc file

export GITROB_ACCESS_TOKEN=your-github-access-token

All right, it’s working!
