I would know if it's possible to download a specific files (json) from github to insert a directory without to download all the files via a zip.

I have this

   $json = @file_get_contents($this->GetGithubRepo() . '/' . $module_name . '/contents/' . $this->ModuleInfosJson . '?ref=master', true, $this->context );

This line read the json, I would to write the json on a directory. Objective is to create a cache and read the cache before to read on github.

Thank you

    Github is not "in love" with this behavior, but I have an entire framework that runs on the same paradigm. I do, however, use the zip. You can hit the raw content following this pattern:

    Look for the "raw" option on a particular file when browsing.

    Here is a config file from one of my repo in a format similar to how you wish:

    should currently return


    Pay attention to document type and encoding, these could trip you up. Your JSON may not be JSON via the header (should not be).

    One final problem, beyond encoding, is that of private accounts. Once private a big can of work will be put on your plate to auth in and see the data.

    The header, mildly changed:

    Date: Thu, 13 Apr 2017 00:02:48 GMT
    Via: 1.1 varnish
    Cache-Control: max-age=300
    Etag: "154ec087bc75e501a18e72d4e14a6f17bc2f706b"
    Connection: keep-alive
    X-Served-By: cache-dfw1840-DFW
    X-Cache: HIT
    x-cache-hits: 1
    X-Timer: S1492012345.3876515,VS0,VE0
    Vary: Authorization,Accept-Encoding
    Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
    Expires: Thu, 13 Apr 2017 00:07:48 GMT
    Source-Age: 35

    Document type is "plain" (text), so some casting and checking will be important. There are tools in PHP to handle the incoming data and use as JSON. Good luck.
