pull-request

All the tools you need to commit to GitHub repos via the API and create pull requests

Supports:

  • exists: check if a repository already exists so you don't try and fork again
  • fork: fork a repository so you get a copy to edit
  • branch: create a new branch in a repository to edit
  • commit: commit changes to files within a branch
  • pull: create a pull request to have a human merge those changes

Installation

npm install pull-request

API

pr.exists(user, repo, options, callback)

Returns true if github.com/:user/:repo exists, and false if requesting that url returns an error.

pr.fork(user, repo, options, callback)

Forks the repo github.com/:user/:repo to the authenticated user and waits until the fork operation completes. To fork to an organization, just add an organization string to the options object.

N.B. forking will currently appear successful even if the target repo already exists. This functionality should not be relied upon and is subject to change without necessarily updating the MAJOR version.

options:

See github-basic and note that auth is required

pr.branch(user, repo, from, to, options, callback)

Creates a new branch in github.com/:user/:repo using from as the source branch and to as the new branch name.

pr.commit(user, repo, commit, options, callback)

Commits a set of changes to github.com/:user/:repo. It only supports updating text files.

commit:

An object with:

property type default description
branch String 'master' The branch to commit to
message String required The commit message
updates Array<FileUpdate> required The actual changes to make

FileUpdate:

An object with:

property type default description
path String required The file path within the repo (e.g. test/index.js)
content String required The new content of the file
mode String '100644' The mode to commit the file with (you probably don't want to change this)
type String 'blob' The type of entry to create (you probably don't want to change this)

options:

See github-basic and note that auth is required

Additionally the force object defaults to false and will force push the change if set to true. You almost certainly don't want to do this.

pr.pull(from, to, message, options, callback)

Creates a pull request from from to to.

from:

An object with:

property type default description
user String required The source user
repo String required The source repository
branch String 'master' The source branch

to:

An object with:

property type default description
user String required The destination user
repo String required The destination repository
branch String 'master' The destination branch

message:

Either:

property type default description
title String required The title of the pull request
body String '' The body of the pull request

or:

property type default description
issue Number required An issue number to convert into a pull request

options:

See github-basic and note that auth is required
