Github Service

This service monitors all of the repositories associated with an organization for changes and schedules Taskcluster tasks for any repository which contains a .taskcluster.yml configuration file. The goal of this project is to provide project owners a method for scheduling jobs in Taskcluster which is quick and straight forward.

NOTE: This project used to provide a base docker image for convenience's sake, but it has been deprecated due to not being that useful and not being kept up-to-date. The image will continue existing, but we recommend migrating to another image.

Adding status badges to your project's README:

Insert the following string (replacing the words in caps with your organization or user name, repository name and the branch name) to the readme file in your project's repository: [![Task Status](](


API Server

Listens for WebHooks and, if they are valid, forwards them to a pulse exchange.


Listen for WebHook triggered pulse messages and attempts to schedule Taskcluster tasks for any events related to a repository which contains a .taskcluster.yml file.


Run Tests

To run the tests, use yarn test. No credentials are necessary. Some tests will be skipped, but it is fine to submit a pull request as long as nothing fails.

To run all tests, you will need appropriate Taskcluster credentials. Using taskcluster-cli, run eval $(taskcluster signin --scopes assume:project:taskcluster:tests:taskcluster-github), then run yarn test again.

To test the components separately, run:

  • server: <set the environment variables> node src/main.js server
  • handlers: <set the environment variables> node src/main.js worker
