Mod_BGithub is a simple module allowing you to embed commit details in a Joomla! site. It uses the GitHub API to retrieve repository information including commits and issues. It can also retrieve user information and display a (very) basic user profile, including a list of the user's public repositories.

The module supports both Joomla! 2.5 and Joomla 3.x and allows for filtering of all displayed information.

There are three pre-configured styles: Chromed, Light and Dark. The latter two are very simple but provide a good starting point for those who want to style the module themselves.

This module is available for free on Github, however the free version comes with no support. Purchase includes 12 months support
