I recently needed to do a quick audit on all my Ansible roles, and the easiest way (since almost every one is on GitHub, and that's the main source of truth I use) was to grab a list of all my GitHub repositories. However, it can be a little tricky if you have hundreds of repos. I'm guessing most people don't have this problem, but whether you do or not, the easiest way to get all of any given user's repositories using the GitHub v3 API is to run the following command:
curl "https://api.github.com/users/geerlingguy/repos?per_page=100&page=1" | jq -r '. | .name'
20:36:48 ~ $ curl "https://api.github.com/users/geerlingguy/repos?per_page=100&page=1" | jq -r '. | .name'
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
100 608k 100 608k 0 0 480k 0 0:00:01 0:00:01 --:--:-- 481k
This will output up to the first 100 repositories. Grab another 100 by changing to
page=2, and so on, and then concatenate the lists together, and voila, you'll have list of all the user's repos.
This command assumes you have
jq installed (on a Mac, just use
brew install jq if it's not already there), and the
-r option passed to
jq strips out quotes so the list is ready for whatever you need to do with it!
