JavaScript and the Git Data API

Applications utilizing the GitHub API will typically reside inside a server. You are not limited, however, to accessing the API from within server side programming languages exclusively. The GitHub API works perfectly well from within a web browser context as well, and the UI to your application come for free if you know a little HTML. In this chapter we discuss how to use the unofficial JavaScript client library to access the GitHub API and build a single page application (SPA) which we host entirely on GitHub.
