A lot of people are forking my GitHub repo and I would like to be able to see what new features they may be working on without having to manually visit each fork to watch.

How to automatically watch all of these repositories? And can I set up all new forks be watched in the future?

Right now I have to watch them manually, it takes many clicks.


Just write a small script with Github API. That should be fairly easy.

  1. Get the list of forks
  2. Foreach result set watching

  • Cool solution ! The second link was broken. Because I didn't got the point, I searched for API repo watching and edited your post. Hope this is ok for you :-) – Danny Jul 11 '15 at 6:37
