I'm curious as to who has starred a GitHub repo of mine, so I'd like a list of users who have starred it. Is this possible to get?

To get a list of users that have starred a repository you can append /stargazers to the URL of the repository

If you have a repository at the following address

https://github.com/strugee/battleship

To see a list of users that have starred that repository visit the following URL

https://github.com/strugee/battleship/stargazers

    For some reason, you can no longer reach the /stargazers page by clicking on the number. I wonder why they removed this functionality? The itself page still exists. Jan 5, 2022 at 0:08

Stargazers

These information is now available in the About section of the repository on the right side of the page beside the code section. The numbers before 'star' and 'watching' are clickable.

You can also see who the watchers are (previous comment is incorrect):

https://github.com/[user]/[repo]/watchers

    He's referring to Hydra's comment that you can only see watchers with the API. Jun 22, 2015 at 2:16

    This answer should be removed and posted as a comment of Hydra's answer, since it's not an answer to the OP's question at all. Or ideally edit Hydra's answer. Oct 20, 2015 at 16:53

Other than the web interface, you can also use the API that GitHub provides to query the users that starred your repository.

With the API, you can also check who is watching your repository, which I believe isn't possible in the web interface.

I created a python package "github-email-explorer" that you can use a command to get a email list from a repo for understanding who have starred.

Here's an example:

$ ge-explore --repo yuecen/github-email-explorer --action_type star fork watch

The result looks like,

User A <[email protected]>; User B <[email protected]>

To get more detail, check it out: https://github.com/yuecen/github-email-explorer

    thanks for the tip, and welcome to Stack Exchange! if you wrote a tool you're linking to (and it seems like you did), it's best practice here to disclose that fact. you can do this by clicking the edit button.
