If you're looking to automate common tasks, back up your data, or create external applications that extend GitHub, our API has you covered.

More information about the API is available on developer.github.com. You can also stay current with API-related news by following the API Changes blog.

The Integrations early release helps you extend GitHub by installing integrations with customized permissions directly on organization and user accounts. For example, you can permission an extension to only have access to specific repositories. For more information, see "Integrations."
