Today on the GitHub blog, we announced the first release of Octokit.net.
GitHub provides a powerful set of tools for developers who build amazing software together. But these tools extend way beyond the website and Git clients.
The GitHub API provides a rich web based way to leverage GitHub.com within your own applications. The Octokit family of libraries makes it easy to call into the API. I can’t wait to see what you build with it.
Octokit.net is an open source project on GitHub so feel free to contribute with pull requests, issues, etc. You’ll notice that we call it a 0.1.0 release. As of today, it doesn’t implement every API endpoint that GitHub.com supports.
We wanted to make sure that it was in use by a real application so we focused on the endpoints that GitHub for Windows needs. If there’s an endpoint that is not implemented, please do log an issue. Or even better, send a pull request! ...
When I saw this, my first thought was, "Oh, CodePlex needs something like this..." My second was, "You Go GitHub!"
