Github provides a way for you to subscribe to Web Hooks (they will POST data to a url you specify) for certain events on your repo. Unfortunately, creating a Web Hook for Pull Requests is more complex than necessary. Git-at-me should handle most of the pain points including generating a token from the command line and starting up a server to listen for notifications with minimal configuration. If you don't pass an auth value, git-at-me will attempt to create one for you by asking for your GitHub username and password. The username and password are not stored, but the token will be saved to a file that you can require later (defaults to github-token.js in the current working directory).
