Github – Atom feed for releases

If you don’t want to check Github pages to get to know when new releases are coming, there is a neat and easy solution for that.

Github provides a atom address that allows you to get informations about new releases. The pattern is:

https://github.com/user/repository/releases.atom

I use Newsboat to check RSS feeds. Into .newsboat directory, the “urls” file contains links for the feeds and the ones on Github looks like:

https://github.com/ncbi/sra-tools/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/igvteam/igv/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/samtools/samtools/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/hluk/CopyQ/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/weizhongli/cdhit/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/broadinstitute/picard/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/Adrian-Cantu/PRINSEQ-plus-plus/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/deeptools/deepTools/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/lh3/minimap2/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/BenLangmead/bowtie2/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/samtools/bcftools/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/bbuchfink/diamond/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/lh3/bwa/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/sylabs/singularity/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/COMBINE-lab/salmon/releases.atom "softwares"
https://github.com/pachterlab/kallisto/releases.atom "softwares"

Now its just add it to your preferred feed manager.
