Last update of GitHub repo

Find out when was the most recent change in a GitHub repository


This shortcut illustrates how to obtain the last modification timestamp of a GitHub repository. It uses the headers of the recent commits GitHub API endpoint (only ~1.2 Kb of traffic).

This allows, for example, caching a file from that repo and only re-download it when that timestamp changes.
