Connect your GitHub repo(s) to murmur your commits

Following our announcement of native support for Git integration, we’re happy to announce Mingle in the cloud now offers native support for GitHub integration as well!

Like our Git integration, this integration allows your GitHub commits to be pushed as murmurs to your Mingle project under the murmurs tab and, when you mention the card number in your commit message, the individual card as well.

Cool GitHub integration features

  1. The commit murmured to your Mingle project will contain a link back to your GitHub repo so you can see commit details and diffs

  2. As with your Git integration, with the recent work we did around murmur love, if you murmur at @someone, @team, or @group in your GitHub commit message, they’ll also receive an email notification!

  3. You can connect multiple GitHub repos to a project! You can also connect a single repo to multiple projects. However, if you’re connecting a single repo to multiple projects, make sure your commit message includes the project id along with the card number (e.g. project_A/#123 or project_B/#123), otherwise the commit will be murmured to the same card number in all of your projects. Use Clippy to help out with this.


  1. Only users who are both Mingle admins and owners of the GitHub repo can setup the integration with the Mingle project


  1. Open your Mingle project
  2. Go to Project Admin
  3. Under Code Integration select GitHub

Test your GitHub integration

  2. Go to the Murmurs tab in the Mingle project associated with the webhook
