If you want to find out how to watch a GitHub repository for new releases and just that, here is very simple guide.
I needed a way to get notified of new releases on selected GitHub repositories and just that. Watching a repository would instead give me too much information such as notifications on new issues and pull requests.
The URLs are:
Verify the URL via web browser. You should be seeing XML content.
Go to IFTTT to create an account if you do not already have one.
Enter the Atom URL.
For this I chose Todoist. You will need to create an account before using.
Todoist allows you to store to-do tasks into Projects. Think of a project as just a folder or a category. When a new entry is created, URL to it will be included into the to-do task. If you want to set a reminder, you can enter that into the due date field. Example values are “today” and “tomorrow”.
