The problem

You want to implement the All Contributors spec, but don't want to maintain the table by hand

This solution

This is a tool to help automate adding contributor acknowledgements according to the all-contributors specification.

Table of Contents

Installation

This module is distributed via npm which is bundled with node and should be installed as one of your project's devDependencies:

npm install --save-dev all-contributors-cli

Then init the project using init and answer a few questions:

./node_modules/.bin/all-contributors init

Then you can add these scripts to your package.json:

{
  "scripts": {
    "contributors:add": "all-contributors add",
    "contributors:generate": "all-contributors generate"
  }
}

and use them via npm run:

npm run contributors:add -- jfmengels doc
npm run contributors:generate

Usage

Generating the contributors list

Use generate to generate the contributors list and inject it into your contributors file. Contributors will be read from your configuration file.

all-contributors generate

Add/update contributors

Use add to add new contributors to your project, or add new ways in which they have contributed. They will be added to your configuration file, and the contributors file will be updated just as if you used the generate command.

# Add new contributor <username>, who made a contribution of type <contribution>
all-contributors add <username> <contribution>
# Example:
all-contributors add jfmengels code,doc

Where username is the user's GitHub username, and contribution is a ,-separated list of ways to contribute, from the following list (see the specs):

Check for missing contributors

Use check to compare contributors from GitHub with the ones credited in your .all-contributorsrc file, in order to make sure that credit is given where it's due.

all-contributors check

Due to GitHub API restrictions, this command only works for projects with less than 500 contributors.

Configuration

You can configure the project by updating the .all-contributorsrc JSON file. The data used to generate the contributors list will be stored in there, and you can configure how you want all-contributors-cli to generate the list.

These are the keys you can specify:

  • files: Array of files to update. Default: ['README.md']
  • projectOwner: Name of the user the project is hosted by. Example: jfmengels/all-contributors-cli --> jfmengels. Mandatory.
  • projectName: Name of the project. Example: jfmengels/all-contributors-cli --> all-contributors-cli. Mandatory.
  • types: Specify custom symbols or link templates for contribution types. Can override the documented types.
  • imageSize: Size (in px) of the user's avatar. Default: 100.
  • contributorsPerLine: Maximum number of columns for the contributors table. Default: 7.
  • contributorTemplate: Define your own template to generate the contributor list.
  • badgeTemplate: Define your own template to generate the badge.
