Coggle Issue Importer

What is it?

Coggle issue importer is a node.js demo application for the Coggle API that imports all the issues from a selected GitHub repository into a Coggle, grouped by their tags.

The user is authenticated for both the Coggle API and the Github API using OAuth. The passport-coggle-oauth2 module used to authorize users with Coggle, and retrieve an access token that can be sent along with requests to prove that your application is allowed to access a user's Coggles.

Try It Here!

Get the Code!

First install node.js, then:

git clone git@github.com:Coggle/coggle-issue-importer.git
cd coggle-issue-importer
npm install

Running Coggle Issue Importer

To use the Coggle API you need a Client ID, and a Client Secret – which Coggle uses to identify requests to the applications that made them.

A new Client ID and Client Secret can be created at http://coggle.it/developer. The redirect URL should be the domain (and optionally port) where you will host the application (for example, localhost or localhost:5000 for testing) followed by /auth/coggle/callback, which is the Coggle oauth authentication callback route of the app.

Since the app also uses the GitHub API, you also need a github API client ID and client secret (get one here). The callback URL for github authorization is (as you'd expect) the domain followed by /auth/github/callback.

Both these pairs of IDs and secrets then need to be provided as environment variables when you run the app. If they are missing the app will refuse to start – but if they are incorrect you will only find out when you try to use it!
