Get your GitHub Issues offline! In Markdown and HTML.

This is a command line application, using Node.js, that fetches the GitHub Issue/s you specify and writes them to files on your computer in both HTML and markdown formats. This way you can view them without an internet connection.

This will cap issues at the first 250.



Use it to save Issues as .md and .html. Options in next section.

  • install
npm install -g @jiapantw/export-github-issues

github_api_token, you can to github generate api_token for temp

  • For one issue:
export-github-issues --token <github_api_token> <ownerId>/<repo>#issueId
  • For all issues:
export-github-issues --token <github_api_token> <ownerId>/<repo>
  • For multiple repositories or issues:
export-github-issues --token <github_api_token> <ownerId>/<repo> <ownerId>/<repo2>#1


export-github-issues --token <github_api_token> justintien/blog#1 justintien/blog#2

The files are written to whichever directory you are currently in. You will see a md and html folder added, each of which contains the issues you requested.


To just generate HTML files from existing offline cache:

export-github-issues -h
export-github-issues --html

To skip generating ./static/* files for HTML:

export-github-issues -S <ownerId>/<repo>
export-github-issues --no-static <ownerId>/<repo>

To save generated files in different location:

export-github-issues -d <DIRECTORY> <ownerId>/<repo>
export-github-issues --destination <DIRECTORY> <ownerId>/<repo>

To filter by issue state:

export-github-issues -s all <ownerId>/<repo>
export-github-issues --state all <ownerId>/<repo>

This option accepts either open, closed or all. (Default: all) Note that the filter won't be applied when issue number is specified, like muan/github-gmail#4.
