Github Plugin

The Github plugin provides a dataset to read issues from a Github repository.

Github is by far the largest code hosting service. The Github plugin for DSS makes it a breeze to retrieve the issues in a Github repository and analyze them.

How to use

To configure the connector, you'll need:

  • Your Github login and password;
  • The owner and name of the repository (organization/repos).

Fetching issues from Github is fairly slow (around 50 issues / second). We highly recommend that you start by syncing the Github dataset into a regular dataset and perform your analyses on this regular dataset.
