Github pack question

Ok the problem I am trying to solve is to match a Github profiles based on someone Full Name. Is it possible to do that?

It does work well with usernames, with the following formula:

Please help!


Pulling in data from GitHub and using the full name to match won’t work. The biggest reason is that a username is a unique identifier and a multiple people can have the same full name. So we need to use the username to find the exact match.

For comparing within Coda, you can extend your formula with the same “dot notation” that our formula builder uses to extract the full name from the returned user…

GitHub::User(benblee, "benblee").Name

This will return “Ben Lee” instead of “benblee”.

So if you have a table of each person’s username and full name, they can be paired up easily.
