github2 0.6.2

GitHub API v2 library for Python.

Package Documentation


GitHub have marked API v2 as deprecated, you should be looking to replace your usage of github2 in the near future.

Both remoteobjects and schematics provide easy-to-use functionality for creating bindings to remote APIs, and should significantly reduce the amount of work needed in moving away from GitHub’s API v2.

This is a Python library implementing all of the features available in version 2 of the GitHub API.

See the doc/ directory for installation instructions and usage information. If you prefer you can also read the documentation online.
