I’ve been reading over the documentation for Github apps and Oauth apps and I need a bit of advice. Also I just want to make sure what I want to do is possible before I get to far down the road trying to figure things out.
I want to make a very simple app that takes 2 inputs: A topic, and a label
It then queries public repos of given topic, for issues with the given label.
For example if I provide “Laravel” as the topic, and “Good first issue” as the label, then I would get a list of issues labeled good first issue from only repos with the topic “Laravel”
Is it possible to query for issues from public repos? Or do permissions need to be granted first?
Should I pursue this as an oauth app or github app?
You can use either application––I think it would ultimately depend on your decision and the scope of your project’s requirements. Here’s some information about our search interface and our APIs that might help you make that decision.
