A series of Python functions for interacting with the GitHub API.

You can download PyGithubApi from its GitHub repository.

The main purpose of PyGithubApi is so I can write a function for my other projects to check back with GitHub and see if they are the most current version. That function will compare the last commit date in pygithubapi.get_last_commit() with the __releasedate__ of a given application: if the last commit is later than the release date, the function will prompt you to download the latest version.
