Github Trending Repository

App that lists trending Github repositories


The android app lets you:

  • Users can view the most trending repositories in Android from Github.
  • Users can search the trending repository
  • Offline Support



On Android versions prior to Android 6.0, trending repository app requires the following permissions:

  • Full Network Access.
  • View Network Connections.


Since there is no official API for Trending Repositories (it is one of the internal GitHub API’s), I have decided to use GitHub Trending API
