Announcing Always Be Closing

Always Be Closing (ABC) is a GitHub App that provides several advanced features that are not provided by GitHub. Many of the features are related to Pull Request management. Any administrator of your repository can enable or disable features on an easy-to-use configuration dashboard. All the features have zero configuration options (boolean: either on or off) and are designed to be intuitive.

The features include:

ABC requires the following GitHub permissions:

  • Repository administration - read-only access
  • Repository metadata - read-only access
  • Organization members - read-only access
  • Commit statuses - read-only access
  • Issues - read and write access
  • Pull Requests - read and write access
  • Repository contents - read and write access

If you prefer not to grant read or write access to repository contents (the code in your git repositories), try Always Be Closing Jr. It provides all the features of ABC that do not require access to repository contents.

Install Always Be Closing via the GitHub marketplace. Use the configuration dashboard to enable and disable features. Leave feedback at the ABC community site.
