I need a command line client for Githubs Search API v3. What would you recommend?


  • Ubuntu
  • preferable plain executable (without need to install via npm)
  • easy and full featured command line interface

Already looked at:

  • If all 3 of the choices presented meet the requirements, what features are you looking for? Feb 23, 2019 at 20:06
  • All require to have nodejs and npm installed. I'd prefer a plain executable. I'm also not aware of the cli differences w.r.t. usability.

    Ah, thanks. Perhaps a small edit to your question might help make it a little more clear the "possible choices" are actually undesirable because you would prefer a plain executable. Maybe just change "possible choices" to "already looked at", or something similar. Feb 23, 2019 at 20:23
  • Please clarify what the output should look like. That is, whether or not the output should be an HTML file, or launch a browser to view that, or should the output should be text on STDOUT.
