I use Github Issues as a bugtracker for a number of my projects. My workflow usually includes having the ticket open in one browser tab, and a local WordPress installation open in another browser tab (to test the bugfixes themselves). When I write commit messages, I want to reference the issue number, but by default, it’s buried deep in the
<title> element, and thus not visible on a smallish browser tab.
So I wrote a short userscript that reproduces the issue number at the beginning of the
<title>, so I can see it at a glance. It’s structured as a userscript for Greasemonkey/Firefox, though I imagine you could easily repackage it for Chrome or whatever.
// ==UserScript== // @name github issue number in tab // @namespace http://boone.gorg.es // @description github issue number in tab // @include https://github.com/*/*/issues/* // @version 1 // @grant none // ==/UserScript== var t, ttext, issueno; t = document.getElementsByTagName( 'title' ); ttext = t.innerHTML; ino = ttext.match(/Issue #([0-9]+)/); console.log("#" + ino + " " + ttext); t.innerHTML = "#" + ino + " " + ttext;
