hubot-github-notify

Build Status

Hubot script to notify users of GitHub comment mentions, issues/PRs assignments.

Quick Start

Install hubot-github-notify as a npm dependency:

npm install hubot-github-notify --save

Then, edit your hubot's external-scripts.json and add node_modules/hubot-github-notify/index.coffee to the array.

Configuration

For every repository you want hubot-github-notify to track you'll have to set up a Webhook in the form of <HUBOT_URL>:<PORT>/hubot/gh-notify and with the following events enabled: issues, issue_comments, pull_request.

You can configure some (optional) environment variables:

  • HUBOT_GITHUB_USER to provide a default GitHub username (or organization) if you want to let your users specify the name of the repositories only. They will still be able to specify a fully qualified path in the form of user/repo.
  • HUBOT_GITHUB_USER_SOMENAME to map chat usernames to GitHub user logins.

It is also strongly advised to make sure your hubot's brain implementation is up and working (the default one is redis-brain).

Username Mapping

If you don't want to use environment variables to map your users, you can rely on the github-credentials.coffee scripts, available in the default hubot-scripts package. Each user can therefore map their own username against a GitHub user:

fra> hubot i am frapontillo
hubot> Ok, you are frapontillo on GitHub

Users can also check their mapping:

fra> hubot who am i
hubot> fra: You are known as frapontillo on GitHub

hubot-github-notify will honor these credentials before the ones in the environment variables; if no mapping is eventually found, an error is shown to the user.

Usage

Notify to mentions/assignments

You can get notified of mentions by telling hubot something like:

user> hubot notify me of mentions in some_user/some_repo
hubot> You will now receive notifications for mentions in some_user/some_repo.

Please note that:

  • to get notified of assignments, replace mentions with assignments
  • you can omit the some_user/ username part, provided you specified the HUBOT_GITHUB_USER among the environment variables
  • you can omit the whole in some_user/some_repo, and you'll be notified for every repository that has a Webhook to the current hubot session; every other mention or assignment notification setting will be deleted and overridden by this one
  • me and of are optional, they're there for the sake of English language

Un-notify from mentions/assignments

To unsubscribe from mentions or assignments, go with:

user> hubot unnotify me from mentions in some_user/some_repo
hubot> You will no longer receive notifications for mentions in some_user/some_repo.

Here as well, please note that:

  • to unsubscribe from assignments, replace mentions with assignments
  • you can omit the some_user/ username part, provided you specified the HUBOT_GITHUB_USER among the environment variables
  • you can omit the whole in some_user/some_repo, and you'll remove every subscription you previously registered
  • me and from are optional

List mentions/assignments notifications

You can ask your hubot what notifications are active:

user> hubot list my mentions notifications
hubot> You will receive notifications for mentions in some_user/some_repo.

The same patterns as before apply here: you can replace mentions with assignments and my is optional.

Directory Structure

hubot-github-notify uses the common directory structure for hubot script packages.

script

This directory is home to development scripts: bootstrap and test are used to bootstrap the development environment and run tests respectively.

src

This directory is home to the actual hubot scripts in the package. The index.coffee entry point will load the scripts from this directory.

test

This directory is home to all the tests for the scripts. Tests use Mocha, Chai and Sinon.
