re: How to create a chatbot to talk with your GitHub repos VIEW POST


Very interesting! But I can't help but ask what would be a practical use case for something like this. Without thinking too hard only very overengineered solutions come to my mind.


Hi Johannes,

I think (chat)bots make sense for maintainers of either lots of projects or projects with a large community behind.

In the end, the platform allows you to provide a chat interface on top of GitHub (and get notifications from GH to manage GH events from another platform).

You could for instance easily create something like Pull Reminders (recently bought by GitHub so I guess at least there were some people that find it useful :-) ) or use the chatbot to enforce the guidelines for user contributions or requests.


Thanks for explaining. Totally makes sense.
