Support Coveralls notification to Github

Hello there, is able to comment on Github PRs, for example, when the coverage has decreased, or fell bellow a certain percentage.
Usually we hide our project's coveralls api key on an encrypted variable.
And PRs can't use these variables.
Because of that, we can't tell coveralls that a PR has happened, and it can't comment on the PR.
How can we solve that? Maybe a specific variable can be used only on some context?

The discussion also happened here:
And here:

    I see. How is that API key is used? Maybe we could do built-in integration with coveralls. Is there any guide/sample how to integrate with it?

    Very simply. If you follow code:
    You will see it is simply some REST endpoint.
    API reference is here:

    I've replied here:

    Still not sure if we should pull this to the UI - maybe do that in appveyor.yml only.

    Appveyor.yml only is fine for me, that is what I use.
    Maybe you could wait for adoption, if it happens then you work on the UI.

    Eventually found enough information in , which talks about parts of the API not documented at (e.g. Appveyor support uses service_number , service_branch and service_build_url) , so that I could add python support, however ..
    then I found that coveralls doesnt group builds by git hash (or anything else) - so multi job builds are not supported.
