Checking for new commits is a waste of your time; Zapier can let you or others know when they happen so you can stay focused. Once this GitHub-Gmail integration is active, any new commit made to your repo will trigger it and send out an email from your Gmail account. This email can be directed to you or any others you want to alert (in case you're the one doing the committing), containing all the information you want to pass on.

How It Works

  1. A new commit is made on a GitHub repo
  2. Zapier automatically sends an email from Gmail

What You Need

  • GitHub account
