Github Labels

Add github labels automatically.

It's very useful that init all your custom labels when create a repo.

$ npm install github-labels -g
$ labels -c path/to/conf.json user/repo

About config file, see my conf for example.

  {"name": "bug", "color": "ffffff"},
  {"name": "feature", "color": "000000"}

Your can simplify it that will generate github default color automatically.

["bug", "feature"]

Force option will delete all existing labels, otherwise will create label when not exist or update label when existing label has different color.

$ labels -c path/to/conf.json -f user/repo

If you're using a private GitHub, you'll need to pass its domain name as parameter.

$ labels -c path/to/conf.json -h user/repo

It currently only support the default path to the API /api/v3 on port 80.

Here is a snippet to be able to export github labels from the labels page of a project
