Quickstart

$ sudo apt-get install g++ zlib1g zlib1g-dev autoconf
$ npm install github-notify

Edit the config.json file:

timeout

How often to check for new issues (in minutes).

github.user

A GitHub username or organisation name.

github.repo

A GitHub repository.

github.authenticate

Not required. Follow instructions at node-github.

email.fields

For config of these follow instructions at Nodemailer.

email.smtp

For config of these follow instructions at Nodemailer.

email.template

An object with two Eco templates for building the email. Plaintext is auto-generated from the HTML version.

And finally start it all up:

$ node index.js

There is also a service on / started on an automatic port or one specified through command line.

ENV

One can use ENV variables in the config.

Replace the value in the config.json file with a string that begins with a $ followed by the ENV variable path. The app will recognize that and get the value from the environment. Example:

"$GITHUB_TOKEN" > process.env.GITHUB_TOKEN

FYI

The data is stored in a flat file EJDB database, app reload on PaaS platforms like Heroku will probably wipe your history.
