Show in GitHub / BitBucket

Xcode plugin to open a related Github or BitBucket page directly from the Xcode editor code window. Installs easily through the Xcode package manager Alcatraz.

Show in GitHub has been tested with Xcode 5.1.1.


Click on any line in a GitHub project and choose "Source Control" (GitHub for Xcode <5.0) --> Open commit on GitHub in the main menu. (e.g. to send this URL via IM)

Open file on Github simply opens the file at its current branch, and not the last commit which changed it. Alternatively you can select a range lines of code and follow the same steps.
