Stalking friends on GitHub

Published 07:42 on 21 February, 2011

A while back, I used Yahoo! Pipes to filter my private GitHub RSS feed, so that it only shows information that may be interesting for me to track. The resultant feed allows me to see what my friends have started watching or have forked, or repos they have recently created, from the comfort of my feed reader.

Following a small refactor—guided by some more Pipes-knowledgable friends of mine (cheers Carlo and Dirk)—I privatised my token, and allowed customisation of the GitHub account used.

So, without further ado, here’s the pipe; feel free to use it to stalk your friends on GitHub:
