GitHub Integration with Torch Project Management (for Developers)

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Using GitHub’s Post-Receive URLs, Torch can now receive push information.

What You Can Do:

The commit messages are posted to the appropriate project. You can also checkoff tasks/events (more than one if you wish) as well as categorize the message. If the project is for a client, you can also include time entries. Here is an example of a commit message:

Setting Up the Integration:

First get the integration URL; this is under the “Integration” sub section of the “Help” tab:

Help Page

NOTE: Part of the URL is blocked out because it contains the project token, however, you must copy the entire URL.

This URL is unique for each project you decide to integrate, so make sure you are on the right project before you copy the URL.

In GitHub, select the appropriate repository then select the “Edit” button. Select the “Service Hooks" sub section then “Post-Receive URLs":
