github-release-notifier 0.1.4

Github Notifier

Latest Version: 0.2.2

This program will allow you to be notified of Github new releases


pip3 install github-release-notifier


usage: github-release-notifier [-h] [--action {cron,subscribe,unsubscribe}] [--package PACKAGE]
              [--webhook WEBHOOK] [--uuid UUID]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --action {cron,subscribe,unsubscribe}, -a {cron,subscribe,unsubscribe}
                        Action to do (default: cron)
  --package PACKAGE, -p PACKAGE
                        Github package name / url (required for
                        subscribe/unsubscribe) - prints uuid on subscription
  --webhook WEBHOOK, -w WEBHOOK
                        URL to your webhook (required for
  --uuid UUID, -u UUID  UUID of your webhook (required for unsubscribe)


First, I register my webhook :

github-release-notifier --action subscribe --webhook --package jaymoulin/google-music-manager

an UUID is printed. this UUID will be required to unsubscribe the webhook.

When jaymoulin/google-music-manager releases a new version, will be called with HTTP verb POST and body, a JSON like this :

    "date": [2017, 11, 13, 19, 46, 35, 0, 317, 0],
    "version": "0.7.2",
    "title": "Fixes split modules",
    "content": "",
    "media": "",
    "author": "jaymoulin"
    "package_name": "jaymoulin/google-music-manager"

For this to happen, the system should check if a new version have been released. We can do that by calling github-release-notifier without any parameter or setting –action to cron (which is default).

To automate this process, we could add this process in a cronjob:

(crontab -l ; echo "0 0 * * * github-release-notifier") | sort - | uniq - | crontab -

This will check every day at midnight if new versions have been released.

Docker Usage

First run the daemon

docker run --name GRN -d femtopixel/github-release-notifier

you can mount a volume to /root/.github_release_notifier/ to keep tracks of webhooks and versions


docker run --name GRN -d -v /path/to/your/saves:/root/.github_release_notifier/ femtopixel/github-release-notifier

Then register your webhook :

docker exec GRN -a subscribe -p jaymoulin/google-music-manager -w
