Introducing Review-Bot

Introduction

review-bot sends a reminder message to Mattermost or Slack with all open pull/merge requests which need an approval. Well suitable for running as a cron-job, e.g. for daily reminders.

This tool is still beta. The usage with Gitlab and Mattermost is more mature while the Github and Slack usage is an early preview.

Installation

go install github.com/sj14/review-bot

Templates

We use the Go template package for parsing. Depending on which backend you use, there are different fields you can use. Check the examples folder for a quick overview.

Gitlab

Accessing {{.Project}} gives you access to these fields.
While {{range .Reminders}} gives you access to {{.MR}} which is the merge request. {{.Missing}} is the Slack/Mattermost handle of the missing reviewer. {{.Discussions}} is the number of open discussion. {{.Owner}} is the Mattermost name of the assignee or otherwise the creator of the merge request. {{.Emojis}} is a map with the reacted emoji’s and their count on this merge request.

The corresponding Go structs:

type data struct {
      Project   gitlab.Project
      Reminders []reminder
}

type reminder struct {
      MR          *gitlab.MergeRequest
      Missing     []string
      Discussions int
      Owner       string
      Emojis      map[string]int
}

Github

Accessing {{.Repository}} gives you access to these fields.
While {{range .Reminders}} gives you access to {{.PR}} which is the pull request. {{.Owner}} the Mattermost name of the PR creator or the Github login as fallback. {{.Missing}} is the Slack/Mattermost handle of the missing reviewer.

type data struct {
      Repository *github.Repository
      Reminders  []reminder
}

type reminder struct {
      PR          *github.PullRequest
      Missing     []string
      Owner       string
}
