groupthink 1.0.0

Install, update, and manage GitHub organization-specific command line scripts

The groupthink package helps you install, update, and manage GitHub organization-specific command line scripts. Let’s say your organization is called foo.

Running groupthink install foo looks for a repository at If it finds one, it installs to the foo-cli directory within ~/.groupthink. Like this:

└── foo-cli
    └── bin
        ├── help
        ├── init
        ├── scan
        ├── setup
        └── validate

It also install as foo script to /usr/local/bin, which allows you to invoke any of the scripts found within the foo-cli/bin directory. So foo init would run the init script within foo-cli/bin, foo help would run the help script in the same directory, and so on.

You can check for updates made to the remote foo-cli repository with groupthink update foo. groupthink upgrade foo would install all updates. And groupthink uninstall foo removes both the foo script in /usr/local/bin and the foo-cli directory in ~/.groupthink.

Finally, you can list all the organization commands you have installed to ~/.groupthink with groupthink list.

To sum up the options:

  • groupthink install <org> installs the scripts for <org>
  • groupthink uninstall <org> removes the scripts for <org>
  • groupthink update <org> checks for updates made to <org>’s scripts
  • groupthink upgrade <org> installs all updates made to <org>’s scripts
  • groupthink list lists all groupthink scripts you have installed for any <org>
  • groupthink install <org> --alias <alias> install the scripts for <org> under <altname> (if you use this, replace <org> with <altname> in the options above)


  • Python (v. 2.7 or 3.3+)
  • git
  • If you’re running Windows, use Git Bash
