Since I published my first projects on GitHub I really enjoyed viewing the traffic on my repositories. It is really interesting to see how many people visit or clone my repositories.
Unfortunately it costs a lot of time to click through all available repositories and I was looking for a more elegant way.
I stumbled upon the npm package github-traffic which already provides an API to fetch the GitHub traffic. So I decided to write a command line interface (CLI) npm package which uses this API.
As a result I can check the traffic on all of my repositories with one CLI command:
Develop & publish npm package
The process is very easy and documented in the npm docs.
Used npm packages
- chalk: Terminal string styling done right
- clui: Node.js toolkit for quickly building nice looking command line interfaces
- commander: The complete solution for node.js command-line interfaces
- figlet: Terminal ASCII art from text
- inquirer: A collection of common interactive command line user interfaces.
