Keep up-to-date with Github repositories
Today, we want to show you a convenient way to keep track of commits and releases happening in a Github repository using feediary.
Subscribe to a respository feed
Let's say we want to get informed about new releases of eleventy, the static site generator used for this blog.
As a first step we open feediary and navigate to Add new feed. There we can enter the URL of the Github repository (in this case https://github.com/11ty/eleventy) and click "Add feed".
You will get to a new page where you could choose between two available feeds. One will notify you about all new commits in the repository (the one starting with Commits -) and the other will notify you about all new releases.
For our example, we choose Releases as we want to know if there is a new release, want to see what changed since the last version, if there is anything we should be aware of before updating and get informed if there is a security update. This all helps us to decide if we want or may even need to update our version for this blog.
For developers it is really useful to keep up-to-date with Github repositories and by using feediary this is pretty easy.
If you become a PRO member you can also create a new list and add all your Github feeds there, making it even more convenient to stay up-to-date.
If you are not using feediary by now, why not give it a try and Sign up. Get started for free and become a PRO member later any time.
