We've recently moved some of the REST API documentation. If you can't find what you're looking for, you might try the new Branches, Collaborators, Commits, Deploy Keys, Deployments, GitHub Pages, Releases, Metrics, Webhooks REST API pages.

리포지토리 콘텐츠

API 엔드포인트를 사용하면 리포지토리에서 Base64로 인코드된 콘텐츠를 만들고, 수정하고, 삭제할 수 있습니다.

리포지토리 콘텐츠 API 정보

원시 형식 또는 렌더링된 HTML(지원되는 경우)을 요청하려면 리포지토리 콘텐츠에 사용자 지정 미디어 형식을 사용합니다.

리포지토리 콘텐츠의 사용자 지정 미디어 형식

README, 파일, symlink는 다음과 같은 사용자 지정 미디어 형식을 지원합니다.

application/vnd.github.raw
application/vnd.github.html

파일 내용을 검색하려면 .raw 미디어 형식을 사용합니다.

Markdown 또는 AsciiDoc와 같은 태그 파일의 경우 .html 미디어 형식을 사용하여 렌더링된 HTML을 검색할 수 있습니다. 태그 언어는 오픈 소스 태그 라이브러리를 사용하여 HTML로 렌더링됩니다.

모든 개체는 다음과 같은 사용자 지정 미디어 형식을 지원합니다.

application/vnd.github.object

콘텐츠 형식에 관계없이 일관된 개체 형식으로 콘텐츠를 검색하려면 object 미디어 형식 매개 변수를 사용합니다. 예를 들어 응답은 디렉터리의 개체 배열 대신 개체 배열을 포함하는 entries 특성이 있는 개체가 됩니다.

API에서 미디어 형식을 사용하는 방법에 대한 자세한 내용은 여기를 참조하세요.

Get repository content

Works with GitHub Apps

Gets the contents of a file or directory in a repository. Specify the file path or directory in :path. If you omit :path, you will receive the contents of the repository's root directory. See the description below regarding what the API response includes for directories.

Files and symlinks support a custom media type for retrieving the raw content or rendered HTML (when supported). All content types support a custom media type to ensure the content is returned in a consistent object format.

Notes:

  • To get a repository's contents recursively, you can recursively get the tree.
  • This API has an upper limit of 1,000 files for a directory. If you need to retrieve more files, use the Git Trees API.
  • Download URLs expire and are meant to be used just once. To ensure the download URL does not expire, please use the contents API to obtain a fresh download URL for each download.
  • This API supports files up to 1 megabyte in size.

If the content is a directory

The response will be an array of objects, one object for each item in the directory. When listing the contents of a directory, submodules have their "type" specified as "file". Logically, the value should be "submodule". This behavior exists in API v3 for backwards compatibility purposes. In the next major version of the API, the type will be returned as "submodule".

If the requested :path points to a symlink, and the symlink's target is a normal file in the repository, then the API responds with the content of the file (in the format shown in the example. Otherwise, the API responds with an object describing the symlink itself.

If the content is a submodule

The submodule_git_url identifies the location of the submodule repository, and the sha identifies a specific commit within the submodule repository. Git uses the given URL when cloning the submodule repository, and checks out the submodule at that specific commit.

If the submodule repository is not hosted on github.com, the Git URLs (git_url and _links["git"]) and the github.com URLs (html_url and _links["html"]) will have null values.

Delete a file

Works with GitHub Apps

Deletes a file in a repository.

You can provide an additional committer parameter, which is an object containing information about the committer. Or, you can provide an author parameter, which is an object containing information about the author.

The author section is optional and is filled in with the committer information if omitted. If the committer information is omitted, the authenticated user's information is used.

You must provide values for both name and email, whether you choose to use author or committer. Otherwise, you'll receive a 422 status code.

Note: If you use this endpoint and the "Create or update file contents" endpoint in parallel, the concurrent requests will conflict and you will receive errors. You must use these endpoints serially instead.
