Friendly GitHub Build Status

Browser extension that makes GitHub a better Social Network

Whether we like it or not, GitHub is de-facto the Social Network for programmers. Let's make it less anti-social.

My 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.

GitHub Enterprise is also supported. More info in the options.

And many more…


Most features can be disabled if they are JavaScript-based (Experimental) and you can override the CSS with your own in the extension options.

We're happy to receive suggestions and contributions, but be aware this is a highly opinionated project. There's a very high bar for adding options. Users will always disagree with something. That being said, we're open to discussing things. If something doesn't make the cut, you can build your customized Friendly GitHub locally, rather than installing it from the Chrome Store.
