Table of Contents

Extract every users (email addresses included) out of a GitHub search.

"Hunt where the ducks are". When you recruit developers, hunt them where they are. And that's on GitHub. GitHub is a surprisingly underestimated good source of data for finding and reaching out to developers.

This automation for GitHub will scrape every profiles resulting for a search you did. Icing on the cake, email addresses are present in at least 70% of cases.

Extract every publicly available info (name, follower count, often email addresses, etc.) of a GitHub Profile in order to know them better.

By the way, most of these emails are personal. That's an opportunity to build super powerful Facebook audiences.

4. Easy & safe authentication

⚠️ To display email addresses, GitHub requires that you're logged in. But that step isn't necessary if you simply need developer's names.

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5. Specify the searches you're interested in.

Go to GitHub and do a search. Here is the top JS dev (more than 50 followers) from Iceland:

If you chose the latter, don't forget to make it public!

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this Facebook automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.
