motivated by #6460

This is a sub-feature tracking issue for adding a recent repositories group to the repositories switcher dropdown. The goal is to facilitate faster switching between a small group of repos related to a single task the user is working on.

Recents mockup reproduction


It will:

  • include 5 most recently opened repos, not including the current one
  • disambiguate names when needed (owner/repo if 2 repos have the same name)
  • filterable (with the existing filter text box)
  • these repos will still appear under their own groups in the rest of the list
  • persist between launches of desktop


We expect to make small revisions to this after we get feedback on beta. Things explicitly up for revisiting:

  • number of recent repos (is 5 too many?)
  • should the recent group include the current repo? if so, how do we highlight it in addition to where it appears in the list?

Thanks @0xa08ab242! We don't intend to provide a toggle for this as it's intended to be relatively unobtrusive. I'm curious what you don't like about it relative to the previous implementation - we're definitely not opposed to iterating as we hear feedback.
