Extract a valid github URL from a given object. We make the assumption that the
given object follows a
package.json format as used by npm.
This module is released in the npm registry as
extract-github and can therefor
be installed using:
npm install --save extract-github
This module was written to only do specific task and do that task well, and that is extracting github information. We therefor export as a single function:
'use strict'; var extract = require('extract-github');
Once you've required the module you can feed it the contents of a package.json to extract to github information.
var github = extract(require('./package.json'));
github variable should now contain an object with a
property which can be re-used to create a new github URL. In addition to parsing
package.json's it also supports extracting github information out of
can do this by extracting Travis-CI badges or just plain ol matching github URL
from the content.
var github = extract(require('fs').readFileSync(__dirname +'/README.md'));
