During Probot office hours, we talked about the difficulties surrounding the installation of GitHub Apps. Specifically, we determined that there is no way to verify that an app has been successfully installed and is running against your repo.
For repo owners, they can go into the settings and see the list but for newcomers to repos there’s no way for them to know what Apps are installed. If we could figure out a way to display installed Apps in the repo view, that’d be great!
It would help a few things:
- Discoverability of apps to make them more popular/more widely used
- Introduce newcomers to the way the repo is managed
Happy to talk about this in some more detail!
