Bulk editor for Github repos


(Florian Echtler) #1

Hello everyone,

while managing my Classroom repositories, I needed to transfer a large bunch of them to another organization for archiving. I could not find any tool that would let me automate that, and I definitely didn’t want to type ~ 140 repo names by hand into the “yes I’m really sure” textbox :wink:

So I ended up writing a small Python/GTK utility to let me do exactly that: https://github.com/floe/github-bulk-editor

Right now, the tool only supports repo transfer as an action, but I’ve tried to keep its internals as generic as possible, so if somebody else needs some other functionality, that should hopefully be very straightforward to add (see project repo for details).

Just wanted to mention this here, in case other teachers have similar needs.

Best regards, Florian
