gitsearch

Small golang program to help you search for users or repos in github, useful when you are using only a shell and don't want to deal with long inputs and output from curl.

Works with GitHub API v3.

go get github.com/aldenso/gitsearch

To show you the usage just type the command alone (shows examples) or use the option help.

gitsearch
gitsearch -h
You must use an option like:
./gitsearch -help
./gitsearch -h
./gitsearch -user -pattern pattern
./gitsearch -repo -pattern pattern
./gitsearch -u -p pattern
./gitsearch -r -login username
./gitsearch -r -p pattern
./gitsearch -r -p pattern -l language -login username
./gitsearch -r -p pattern -paging=10
