I wanted to download files from github using java code and not visiting github page. Want to dowonload subdirectory or subfolder from github by directly hitting url provided for download.
Hey! You will want to use: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/net/URL.html in order to make a request.
If the content is Base64 encoded, you can use: https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/contents/
Otherwise, you may need to use: https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/releases/#get-a-single-release-asset to get the assets from the release.
