Have you ever had too much fun with the GitHub API and ended up creating too many dummy repos? Me too
I made this little CLI tool to clean up repositories quickly. I'm planning to add some flags and regexp to delete in bulk in the future. Let me know if that sounds interesting to you.
The important parts of the project are the following:
├── .github GitHub Actions workflows and repo settings ├── src │ ├── config.js Contains the configuration manager │ ├── github.js Business logic: authentication and API calls │ ├── ui.js CLI interactions │ └── utils.js Lightweight utility functions ├── test │ └── test.js Test coverage with Mocha ├── .prettierrc Code formatting configuration ├── index.js The main thread of execution ├── README.md you're looking at it
To set up your environment to develop this tool, run:
You can also run
node index DEV=true CLIENT_ID=<YOUR_TESTING_CLIENT_ID> if you want to use your own client id for development and testing purposes.
All the tests are written with mocha and can be run with
--forceflag to avoid confirmation
--regexflag to delete repos matching a regex
--listflag to delete repos from a comma-separated list
