Configuration

Once you’ve added multi-labeler to your repository, it must be enabled by adding a .github/labeler.yml configuration file to the repository.

Matchers

RegEx matcher requires backslash '' to be double slashed '\'. Hence, to match brackets '()' you need a regex of '\(\)'. See https://github.com/fuxingloh/multi-labeler/issues/103

PR/Issue Title: RegEx

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "feat"
    matcher:
      title: "^feat:.*"

PR/Issue Body: RegEx

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "bug"
    matcher:
      # e.g. '- [x] bug'
      body: "(\\n|.)*- \\[x\\] bug(\\n|.)*"

PR/Issue Comment: RegEx

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "stale"
    matcher:
      comment: "/stale"

PR Branch: RegEx

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "feat"
    matcher:
      branch: "^feat/.*"

PR Commits: RegEx

Check all commits and find any match, max of 250 commits only.

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "feat"
    matcher:
      commits: "^feat: .*"

PR/Issue Author

Check for pr or issue author match.

version: v1

labels:
  - label: "single"
    matcher:
      author: "fuxingloh"
  - label: "any"
    matcher:
      author:
        - adam
        - claire

Why?

There are so many labeler why create another? 😧

  1. I want a lightweight labeler that is written in TypeScript so that it don't have to build a docker image everytime it runs.
  2. I want a simple match first append based multi-labeler without it being a turing complete solution.
  3. I want to write my rules with .github/labeler.yml for a single source of label truth.
  4. I don't want it to do anything else, labels only.
    1. Assume you are using GitHub branch protection (labels only).
    2. I want to run this in PR triage before everything else (labels only).
    3. Chain this action with another action; this should just be for (labels only).
