1 Introduction

Forge allows you to work with Git forges, such as Github and Gitlab, from the comfort of Magit and the rest of Emacs.

Forge fetches issues, pull-requests and other data using the forge’s API and stores that in a local database. Additionally it fetches the pull-request references using Git. Forge implements various features that use this data but the database and pull-request refs can also be used by third-party packages.
