This unofficial library is a Node.js wrapper for the GitHub Search API. The library can be used to query GitHub with a JSON object for information about users, repos, issues, and code. As the GitHub Search API sends authenticated HTTP requests, using the API and library require a GitHub username and password.
While the number of APIs grows by leaps and bounds every year, only a fraction of websites offer official APIs. Not willing to wait, those who want and need data are increasingly taking matters into their own hands through the creation of unofficial APIs. A new tool, Gargl, gives individuals an open-source option for doing just that.
