Chrome extension that simplifies the GitHub interface and adds useful features

We use GitHub a lot and notice many dumb annoyances we’d like to fix. So here be dragons.

Our hope is that GitHub will notice and implement some of these much needed improvements. So if you like any of these improvements, please email GitHub support about doing it.

Read more in this blog post.


And lots more…

Linkified URLs and issue references in code


Install it from the Chrome Web Store or manually.


We’re happy to receive suggestions and contributions, but be aware this is a highly opinionated project. We’re not interested in adding options as it’s a slippery slope into adding it for everything. Users will always disagree with something. That being said, we’re open to discussing things.


Community tweaks

Stuff that didn’t get included, but might be useful.


While this project is highly opinionated, this doesn’t necessarily limit you from manually disabling functionality that is not useful for your workflow. Options include:

  1. (CSS Only) Use a Chrome extension that allows injecting custom styles into sites, based on a URL pattern. Stylist is one such tool. Example

  2. Clone the repository, make the adjustments you need, and load the unpacked extension in Chrome, rather than installing from the Chrome Store.
