Getting Started

This guide walks you through the initial setup and integration of Gitar with your code repositories. Follow these steps to start automating code maintenance.


  1. Install Gitar Bot on your repositories
  2. Go to any repository in which you’ve installed the bot
  3. Add a comment on any GitHub issue with the following syntax:

@gitar-bot cleanup stale_flag=value

Replace stale_flag with the name of the stale feature flag and value with true, false, or any other value.

For example:

  • @gitar-bot cleanup my-feature=on
  • @gitar-bot cleanup dark-mode=true
