Overview

The EGit Mylyn connector supports creating task repositories for working with GitHub issues and Gists.

Issues

Queries

GitHub issue task repositories support creating queries that filter by the following fields:

  • State (open or closed)
  • Milestones
  • Mentions
  • Assignee
  • Labels

Note that when multiple filters are used in the same query the returned issues match all of the filters.

Gists

Creating

Gists can be created by selecting text in a editor or files in an explorer and selecting the Create Gist context menu. A Gist will be created in a background job and a notification popup will display after the Gist has been created.

Queries

Gist queries only support filtering by a specified GitHub user name.

Editing

The task editor for Gists supports the following:

  • Updating the description
  • Commenting
  • Opening the files in a gist
