I’ve been working a lot with the GitHub API of late, for the Go-based client I’m
building for HPE. One of the key elements for us (and for everybody else I assume)
is the GitHub auth infrastructure. So far, the
lib has served us well, except that, for whatever reason, the entire auth API was
not implemented. From my perspective, that would have been the first thing I implemented,
but that was the situation.
I opened a PR for
it, which was recently merged (with some modifications… specifically about pointers, I’ll
make another post about that some day). Anyhoo, the good news is, you can now use
perform auth against their API. Credit to the
go-github lib maintainers, they did respond
very quickly and in a collegiate manner, that’s how a project should be run.
