Joomla Extension: GitHub Events

Published › April 5, 2014 0 Comments


Display GitHub events on your site, to promote your repos even more

The GitHub Events module displays a list of GitHub events (push, merges, etcetra) from your GitHub repositories, including information on the events actor (in English, the person who made the change).

Configuring the GitHub API credentials

In the module setting, you need to fill in 3 fields:

  • GitHub user: The username of the GitHub user that you want to display information from.
  • GitHub Client ID
  • GitHub Client Secret

To get the values for Client ID and Client Secret, login to your GitHub account and navigate to the Account Settings and then Applications. Under Developer Applications, register a new application. Set both URLs simply to the URL of your Joomla! website, and name the application as you wish. Once the application is saved, the application page will list the Client ID and Client Secret in the top right.
