The GitHub component interacts with the GitHub API by encapsulating egit-github. It currently provides polling for new pull requests, pull request comments, tags, and commits. It is also able to produce comments on pull requests, as well as close the pull request entirely.
Rather than webhooks, this endpoint relies on simple polling. Reasons include:
- Concern for reliability/stability
- The types of payloads we're polling aren't typically large (plus, paging is available in the API)
- The need to support apps running somewhere not publicly accessible where a webhook would fail
Note that the GitHub API is fairly expansive. Therefore, this component could be easily expanded to provide additional interactions.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:
Note that these can be configured directly through the endpoint.
