NPM version Build Status Dependency Status

A Hubot plugin for alerts in your chat for GitHub issue labels.

Basic setup

  • npm install hubot-github-issue-label-notifier --save
  • Add the script to your Hubot using external-scripts.json.
  • Set the HUBOT_GITHUB_NOTIFIER_SECRET environment variable to a secret key. Choose something secure!
  • Optionally: Set a HUBOT_GITHUB_NOTIFIER_LABEL_FILTER environment variable with a filter for issues. Without a filter, all labels are used. Multiple values are comma separated.

GitHub webhook setup

You'll want to setup a GitHub webhook to point to this script. Here's the basics:

  • Payload URL: (update and specific-chat-room for your environment).
  • Choose application/json as the Content type.
  • You'll need to specify the same secret as your HUBOT_GITHUB_NOTIFIER_SECRET environment variable.
  • Make sure it's not set to push events only -- everything or Issues are sufficient.

GitHub enables you to replay Recent Deliveries using a web browser, which can be handy if you're debugging.
