NAME

Pithub - Github v3 API

VERSION

version 0.01029

SYNOPSIS

    use Pithub;
    use Data::Dumper;

    my $p = Pithub->new;
    my $result = $p->repos->get( user => 'plu', repo => 'Pithub' );

    # $result->content is either an arrayref or an hashref
    # depending on the API call that has been made
    printf "%s\n", $result->content->{html_url};     # prints https://github.com/plu/Pithub
    printf "%s\n", $result->content->{clone_url};    # prints https://github.com/plu/Pithub.git

    # if the result is an arrayref, you can use the result iterator
    my $result = $p->repos->list( user => 'plu' );
    while ( my $row = $result->next ) {
        printf "%s\n", $row->{name};
    }

    # Connect to your local GitHub Enterprise instance
    my $p = Pithub->new(
        api_uri => 'https://github.yourdomain.com/api/v3/'
    );

DESCRIPTION

Pithub provides a set of modules to access the Github v3 API in an object oriented way. There is also Net::GitHub which does the same for all the versions (v1, v2, v3) of the Github API. Pithub supports all API calls so far, but only for v3.

ATTRIBUTES

search_api

    my $p = Pithub->new({ search_api => 'v3' });
    my $search = $p->search; # $search->isa('Pithub::SearchV3');

This attribute allows the default for the API to use for searches to be specified. The two accepted values are v3 and legacy. For compatibility reasons the default is legacy.

METHODS

events

Provides access to Pithub::Events.

gists

Provides access to Pithub::Gists.

git_data

Provides access to Pithub::GitData.

issues

Provides access to Pithub::Issues.

orgs

Provides access to Pithub::Orgs.

pull_requests

Provides access to Pithub::PullRequests.

repos

Provides access to Pithub::Repos.

  my $legacy_search  = $p->search(search_api => 'legacy');
  my $v3_search      = $p->search(search_api => 'v3');
  my $default_search = $p->search;

Provides access to Pithub::Search and Pithub::SearchV3. When no search_api option is given, the value provided by the search_api attribute is used.

users

Provides access to Pithub::Users.

DOCUMENTATION

Quite a lot of the Pithub documentation has been taken directly from the great API documentation at Github. Please also read the documentation there, since it might be more complete and more up-to-date.

WARNING

Pithub as well as the Github v3 API are still under development. So there might be things broken on both sides. Besides that it's possible that the API will change. This applies to Pithub itself as well as the Github v3 API.

CONTRIBUTE

This module is hosted on Github, so feel free to fork it and send pull requests. There are two different kinds of test suites, one is just checking the HTTP requests that are created by the method calls, without actually sending them. The second one is sending real requests to the Github API. If you want to contribute to this project, I highly recommend to run the live tests on a test account, because it will generate a lof of activity.

MODULES

There are different ways of using the Pithub library. You can either use the main module Pithub to get access to all other modules, like Pithub::Repos for example. Or you can use Pithub::Repos directly and create an instance of it. All modules accept the same attributes, either in the constructor or later by calling the setters.

Besides that there are other modules involved. Every method call which maps directly to a Github API call returns a Pithub::Result object. This contains everything interesting about the response returned from the API call.

Pithub::Base might be interesting for two reasons:
