Help looking for forks on Github

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by Chevels, Oct 13, 2018.

  1. Hello,

    I wanted to know if there is a way to find the most recent fork for a Github project?

    Some plugins are abandoned and I regularly have to check all the forks one by one to find the most recent, in the hope that someone has updated the plugin.
    Sometimes it allows me to find an updated fork but my search method is laborious because some plugins have tens or hundreds of forks. Like this one: https://github.com/james9909/war/network/members

    Perhaps there is a way to find the most recent forks directly?



    PS: I had created the same subject on the forum "programming" but I'm not sure it's the right place so I prefer to put it here
     
  2. Add "fork:true" to the end of your search string, then change the sort options (top right) to "recently updated".
     
  3. Thank you for your answer!
    I have trouble using advanced search to find only the forks of the plugin "War". Each time the search gives me +108000 results and includes all the projects that include the word "war" (warrior, warning etc).

    Is there a way to search for a strict term? (only "war")

    Excuse me to ask but despite all my different tests I can not find the forks of the plugin War to be able to classify them by "updated recently".
     
  4. Thank you very much, that's exactly what I was looking for!
