Check out a demo of the widget in action @


This widget is hosted via GitHub Pages, meaning all you need to do is include an iframe in your html and you're good to go. There are 4 params at the moment: username, repo, branch, and limit.

<iframe src=""
  allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="502px" height="252px"></iframe>


GitHub username that owns the repo (required)

GitHub repository to check for activity (required)

Branch to pull commits from (default: master)

The maximum number of results to list (default: 10)

Things to Note

  • Width and height are hardcoded. Be sure to specify the default values (500x250) in your iframe and overload those values in the css if you want to change them.

  • The widget currently depends on jquery and jquery.timeago at the moment.
