GitHub sample

Using the GitHub sample bundle

The GitHub example bundle in samples/github demonstrates the ability to access the GitHub rest API. Here is a guide to how to get it working.


You will need a working nodecg-io installation. If you have non yet take a look at installation guide. You may need to install this bundle, so take a look at the “Try an included sample”-Guide. It will also tell you how to log in and how to use the GUI.

You also need:

  • A GitHub token


If you don't have a token yet, you can create one here. The token requires at least the repo scope.

Configure the GitHub sample bundle

  1. In NodeCG, create a new GitHub service instance.
  2. Enter the GitHub token:

        "token": "abcdef...."

    After entering it, click save.

  3. Set the sample's (github) dependency to be the newly created service instance (of type github).

  4. Check the NodeCG logs:

    You should see an error or a success message and a list of all your repositories.
