This is an extension for Chrome,
Safari (see note below), and Firefox (beta) that lets you toggle between your regular GitHub contribution chart and an isometric pixel art version. It uses obelisk.js for the isometric graphics.
Besides being sort of neat looking, this view is interesting in that it highlights the differences between the number of contributions with more granularity. This isn't meant to completely replace the standard 2D graph though, because in most ways it is actually less useful. For example, there are no axis labels, shorter bars can be hidden behind taller ones, you can't hover over a bar to see the day and count, etc.
NOTE: When installing this extension, you will likely see a warning about it needing access to all domains, not just github.com. This is required for people who are using GitHub Enterprise since it can be installed on any domain name.
The easiest way to install the extension is through the Chrome Web Store:
Only Firefox Developer Edition is supported at the moment. Set
about:config. Download the isometric-contributions.xpi file and open it in Firefox Developer Edition. Or, in Add-ons Manager, choose "Install Add-on From File" under the wrench icon and choose the xpi file you downloaded.
Download the isometric-contributions.safariextz and then double-click the file to install it.
I'm no longer able to build Safari extensions because you now need a paid Apple Developer account to do so. I've decided not to spend the $99 for an account since this is the only thing I'd use it for.
If you want to hack on the extension, you'll need to install it manually. First clone or fork this repo. Then, on your Chrome Extensions page, make sure "Developer mode" is checked. You can then click the "Load unpacked extension..." button and browse to the
chrome directory of this repo.
To hack on the extension, you'll first need to make sure you've installed it in Developer mode (see above). Once you've made changes to the extension, go back to the Extensions page and click the Reload link under the extension entry.
