Mod_BGithub is a simple module allowing you to embed commit details in a Joomla site. It uses the GitHub API to retrieve repository information including commits and issues. It can also retrieve user information and display a (very) basic user profile, including a list of the user’s public repositories.

The module supports both Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3 and allows for filtering of all displayed information.

There are three pre-configured styles: Chromed, Light and Dark. The latter two are very simple but provide a good starting point for those who want to style the module themselves.

Please Note: By default, the module includes a link back to my site, however this can be switched off under Basic Options in the module configuration
