Have you ever written what you thought was a one-time query, only to have to re-create it from memory a few weeks later?
Or have you ever found yourself needing a previous version of a query you wrote?
With a query library — a repository for saving, updating, and tracking changes in your queries — you won't run into these problems ever again.
Rather than manually updating your query library, you can have it automatically update every time a query is executed.
How is this done? By connecting your GitHub repository to superQuery.
⚡ Here's how ⚡
How to connect your repository
Step 1: Click the GitHub icon in your Resource Panel
Step 2: Authorize superQuery to access your resources
This allows superQuery to display a list of repositories that you can connect to.
Step 3: Select the repository you want to connect***
***Make sure your repository has at least one file inside before connecting (a README file works just fine).
If you don't have a GitHub repository already, don't worry. You can set up a private one for free.
Step 4 (only if you aren't the repository owner):
Request permission to install the superQuery GitHub application
In cases where you want to connect to a repository you're not the owner of — such as a repository inside of your company's GitHub Organization — you have to request permission from the repository owner.
To request permission, go here.
Select your company's GitHub Organization to request access.
Decide whether you want to request permission for all repositories, or specific ones.
Conversely, you could share this post with your GitHub Organization owner. It explains how to connect their GitHub Organization to superQuery.
