Give thanks (in the form of a GitHub โ˜…) to your fellow Go modules maintainers.

About

GoThanks performs the following operations

  • Sends a star to Go's repo (github.com/golang.go)
  • Reads your go.mod file and sends a star to every Github repository that your app/library depends on

This is a simple way to say thanks to the maintainers of the modules you use and the contributors of Go itself.

Credits

GoThanks is a Go port of symfony/thanks implemented by Nicolas Grekas (nicolas-grekas) for PHP.

Original idea by Doug Tangren (softprops) for Rust.

Installation

$ go get -u github.com/psampaz/gothanks

Usage

In order to run GoThanks you need to have a valid Github Access Token with public_repo scope.

You can pass the token as an argument to GoThanks or store it in an environmental variable named GITHUB_TOKEN.

Inside the folder where your go.mod lives run:

$ ./gothanks -github-token=xxxxxx

or

$ export GITHUB_TOKEN=xxxxx
$ ./gothanks

Docker

Run

docker run -it --rm -v $(pwd):/home psampaz/gothanks:latest -github-token=xxxxxx

or

docker run -it --rm -v $(pwd):/home --env GITHUB_TOKEN=xxxxxx psampaz/gothanks:latest
