Quickstart

First, add Tentacat to your mix.exs dependencies:

def deps do
  [{:tentacat, "~> 2.0"}]
end

Fetching dependencies and running on elixir console:

mix deps.get
iex -S mix

You will something like this:

Erlang/OTP 17 [erts-6.0] [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [async-threads:10] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Interactive Elixir (0.13.3) - press Ctrl+C to exit (type h() ENTER for help)
iex(1)>

Now you can run the examples!

Examples

Every call to GitHub needs a client, but if you want to use unauthenticated requests we will provide an unauthenticated client for you. Keep in mind that GitHub has different rate-limits if you authenticate or not.

Getting info from a user using a client

iex> client = Tentacat.Client.new
%Tentacat.Client{auth: nil, endpoint: "https://api.github.com/"}
iex> Tentacat.Users.find client, "edgurgel"

Getting info from a user without a defined client

iex> {200, data, _response} = Tentacat.Users.find("edgurgel")

iex(8)> get_in(data, ["name"])
"Eduardo Gurgel"

Getting info from the authenticated user

  • Using user and password:
iex> client = Tentacat.Client.new(%{user: "user", password: "password"})
%Tentacat.Client{auth: %{user: "user", password: "password"}, endpoint: "https://api.github.com/"}
iex> Tentacat.Users.me(client)
iex> client = Tentacat.Client.new(%{access_token: "928392873982932"})
%Tentacat.Client{auth: %{access_token: "928392873982932"}, endpoint: "https://api.github.com/"}
iex> Tentacat.Users.me(client)

Accessing another endpoint

iex> client = Tentacat.Client.new(%{access_token: "928392873982932"}, "https://ghe.example.com/api/v3/")
%Tentacat.Client{auth: %{access_token: "928392873982932"}, endpoint: "https://ghe.example.com/api/v3/"}
iex> Tentacat.Users.me(client)

Misc

Having that Github Reviews API is still in a pre-release state you need to set an additional header in your config.

config :tentacat, :extra_headers, [{"Accept", "application/vnd.github.black-cat-preview+json"}]

Deserialization Options

You can pass deserialization options to the library used to decode JSON using:

# To have Atom keys
config :tentacat, :deserialization_options, [keys: :atoms]

See: https://hexdocs.pm/jason/Jason.html#decode/2-options for available options.

Contributing

Start by forking this repo

Then run this command to fetch dependencies and run tests:

MIX_ENV=test mix do deps.get, test

If you are using Intellij and debugging the test suite - be sure to set 'INTELLIJ_ELIXIR_DEBUG_BLACKLIST=hackney' in the Elixir Mix Eunit configuration - if you fail to do so the mocked hackney module will be reloaded from disk and tests will behave abnormally.
