When we were designing our student pages at the Flatiron School, one of our major questions was what to include. As programmers, one of the best ways that we can get noticed is to have our open-source projects available in as many places as we can find them. Github allows you to show your code to the world. The Octopress sidebar has built-in functionality of a list of your current Github repos, but wouldn’t it be cooler to have public activity feed that shows which of your repos have the most current commits?
1. Find your Github RSS key.
Github provides an RSS key to all of your public activity. This format of your key will be:
Replace USERNAME with your username. For example, my public github key would be https://github.com/cjbrock.atom. If you subscribe to your own RSS feed, the key generated will be your private RSS feed. It looks something like this: https://github.com/username.private.actor.atom?token=somehextoken. Unless you would like to expose your private key to the rest of the world, please do not use this key.
A simpler version of Feed2JS is located here, but it is not guaranteed to stay live.
