API Concepts

Message may be raised by any API call when the GitHub service returns an unexpected response code. Typical reasons for this exception are insufficient permissions or missing resources.

module Response : sig ... end

Functions corresponding to direct API requests return Response.t values inside of Monad.t values so that more information about the request can be made available. Monad.(>>~) is a convenience operator that lets you bind directly to the carried value.

module Monad : sig ... end

All API requests are bound through this monad which encapsulates an Lwt cooperative thread and includes some state which may be set via API functions.

module Endpoint : sig ... end

Each request to GitHub is made to a specific Endpoint in GitHub's REST-like API.

module Stream : sig ... end

The Stream module provides an abstraction to GitHub's paginated endpoints. Stream creation does not initiate any network activity. When requests are made, results are buffered internally. Streams are not mutable.

type rate =
  1. | Core
  2. | Search

rate is a type used to indicate which rate-limiting regime is to be used for query quota accounting. rate is used by the function in API.

type 'a authorization =
  1. | Result of 'a
  2. | Two_factor of string

Some results may require 2-factor authentication. Result values do not. Two_factor values contain the mode by which a 2FA code will be delivered. This code is required as ?otp to a subsequent invocation of the function which returns this type.

type +'a parse = string -> 'a Lwt.t

'a parse is the type of functions which extract meaningful values from GitHub responses.

type 'a handler = ((Cohttp.Response.t * string) -> bool) * 'a

'a handler is the type of response handlers which consist of an activation predicate (fst) and a parse function (snd).

val log_active : bool Stdlib.ref

log_active regulates debug messages. It is true by default when the environment variable GITHUB_DEBUG is set to 1.

module Scope : sig ... end

The Scope module abstracts GitHub's authorization scopes.

module Token : sig ... end

The Token module manipulates authorization tokens. GitHub has two types of tokens: OAuth application tokens and "personal tokens".

module API : sig ... end

The API module contains functionality that relates to the entirety of the GitHub API and these bindings. In particular, this module contains:

module URI : sig ... end

The URI module contains URI generation functions which may be useful for linking on the Web or passing to other GitHub API clients.

module Filter : sig ... end

The Filter module contains types used by search and enumeration interfaces which describe ways to perform result filtering directly in the GitHub API.

API Modules
module Rate_limit : sig ... end

The Rate_limit module contains explicit rate limit API request functions which do not read the rate limit cache but do write to it.
