I would like an API for hooking up a repository to CI.
I use a scaffolding tool to create new projects, saving me a lot of time writing boilerplate.
One thing it is able to do is speak to GitHub’s API to set up a repository.
The next logical step is to hook up that repository to CI, but there doesn’t seem to be an API to do so.
What I am looking for is akin to the “Build project” button at circleci.com/add-projects which seems to do this behind the scenes. Although for this particular use case I don’t need to build right away (I leave committing to a manual step, so there are no commits, but the repo is initialized).
In the response I would like at least the URL to the project on Circle.
