pull-report reads your "~/.gitconfig" file looking for an entry like:

  user = MY_USERNAME
  password = MY_PASSWORD
  token = MY_TOKEN

You can alternately specify / override values on the command line:

$ pull-report \
  --org FormidableLabs \
  --gh-user MY_USERNAME \
  --gh-pass MY_PASSWORD

$ pull-report \
  --org FormidableLabs \
  --gh-token MY_TOKEN

If you user two factor auth (or do not want to specify a password on the command line or in your config file, you may instead specify a personal access token. You should generate a token from your github user account with NO additional privileges and either include it in your .gitconfig file or specify it on the command line.

The order of authentication preferences are:

  1. --gh-token
  2. --gh-user/--gh-pass w/ .gitconfig:github:user/.gitconfig:github:password
  3. .gitconfig:github:token
  4. .gitconfig:github:user, .gitconfig:github:password

GitHub Enterprise

Pull report has experimental support for GitHub Enterprise repositories. However, there are a few things to note:

  • Brittle Implementation: We hack up the host and route paths internally in the underlying node-github library. The underlying library could change how its internals work and our hack would be broken.
  • Disables TLS Cert Matching: Pull report has an --insecure option to disable the NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED environment variable to avoid an UNABLE_TO_VERIFY_LEAF_SIGNATURE error when hitting GitHub enterprise through a VPN or proxy. Do not use the flag if you can't otherwise verify you are going through a safe transport mechanism (i.e., in other programs that do verify).

To retrieve reports from GitHub Enterprise, set the --host flag to the host name of your GitHub Enterprise host.

Pull report uses Handlebars.js templates for rendering reports. The built-in templates available are:

  • text.hbs: Default pure text template. Used if no other option or templates specified.
  • html.hbs: HTML output templates. Used if the --html option is provided. The provided HTML template has some preliminary classes for user styling (in another HTML document) and a few random Pure CSS classes that are currently being used in another project. (We'll look to shore this up in future releases.)

Custom templates can be specified using the command option: --tmpl /PATH/TO/TEMPLATE.hbs.


There is a bit of inefficiency in the current underlying use of the GitHub API. But, any issues should be relatively easy to fix and enhance.

  • pull-report retrieves at most 100 pull requests/issues for any repo.
