Interacting with GitHub#

GitHub is one of the main sources for code and data on OSBv2.

Any public GitHub repository can be used as the source of an OSB repository.

The main repository in the Guided tour of OSBv2 has its source on GitHub.

Note for GitHub based repositories and workspaces:

  • Currently only public GitHub repositories can be used as a source for OSBv2 repositories.

  • What is copied to a workspace when it is created from a GitHub repository is a snapshot of the repository contents, i.e. whatever is committed to the specified branch at that time.
