GitHub CSV Import and Export

Update 2020: The tool now imports and exports GitHub issues to/from CSV!

Have you ever wanted to import issues from a different system into GitHub? I just released a new tool that will allow you to do that. All you need to do is get your issues into a simple CSV format including title, description, and the tags that you want, and the script will do the rest.

To use, just install using npm install -g github-csv-tools and then run githubCsvTools myFile.csv from the command line, referencing your CSV file that you want to import. It’ll ask you for a GitHub token, and a few other details, and then you’ll have your issues in GitHub!

The tool can also export issues and comments to CSV. Please leave comments or feedback in the GitHub repository.
