Create Issue Branch

A GitHub App/Action that automates the creation of issue branches (either automatically after assigning an issue or after commenting on an issue with a ChatOps command: /create-issue-branch or /cib).

Built in response to this feature reuest issue:
https://github.com/isaacs/github/issues/1125

What does this app do?

This app can support your development workflow in two ways (modes): auto and chatops.

In "auto" mode the typical development workflow is:

  1. An issue is created, for example: Issue 15: Fix nasty bug!

some time may pass

  1. The issue is assigned
  2. When the issue is assigned this app will create a new issue branch
    (for the example issue this branch will be called issue-15-Fix_nasty_bug)

In "chatops" mode the typical development workflow is:

  1. An issue is created, for example: Issue 15: Fix nasty bug!

some time may pass

  1. A developer that wants to work on this issue gives the ChatOps command /cib as a comment on the issue
  2. This app will create a new issue branch
    (for the example issue this branch will be called issue-15-Fix_nasty_bug)
    By default the app notifies creation is completed with a comment on the issue.

Installation

There are two options to run this app as part of your development workflow:

  1. Install it as an app for your organization/account/repository
  2. Run it as an action in your GitHub action YAML configuration
