Best way to access custom Github App from Github

Hello there!

We have developed a github app which configuration happens from our own user interface. Unfortunatelly github doesn't provide any way to integrate your own UI. I was curious to know which are the best approach to solve this situation, how do you link your github app users to your own configuration UI. Is Github planning on provide a way to integrate your own UI into the product?


Thanks in advance!

Re: Best way to access custom Github App from Github

If I'm understanding you correctly, we don't currently have any plans for GitHub App creators to add configuration UI to the GitHub-based application pages. On the other hand, you may want to take a look at other GitHub Apps and how they solve this problem. For example, dependabot uses an interesting kind of almost "command-line interface" in its interactions on your repositories:

Example interactions can be found on my repo.


I hope that helps!
