Helper for GitHub notifications in Gmail
This is a Chrome extension
/Firefox addon(out of date) that allows you to open threads in GitHub notification emails with a shortcut.
Mail View Shortcut
Open your GitHub notifications using a shortcut (default to
shift + g, or
shift + b to open in the background in Chrome), or this button in mail view:
List View Shortcut
The shortcut is
ctrl + return(enter) (currently non-customizable). It will trigger one the action button when an email is selected using key navigation (when the blue bar appears):
If you no longer want to receive notifications for a certain thread on GitHub, click the
Mute thread button or using a shortcut
shift + h, it will open a background window to load the mute thread request, and close itself when done.
The Easy Way
The Mu-An-might-steal-all-my-data-so-I-want-to-manually-load-it Way (for Chrome)
- Go to Releases and download the latest version.
- Unzip the folder wherever you'd like.
- Read Mu-An's code, making sure there is no data stealing.
- Go to Chrome extensions page (
chrome://extensions/) and load the folder as an Unpacked extension.
Firefox addon is out of date, see https://github.com/muan/github-gmail/issues/70.
Options and preferences
There are 3 preference settings:
- Custom domains
- Mail view shortcut
- List view regular expression
Attention After updating a setting, please refresh both the extensions page and the Gmail page.
Custom Domains (for GitHub Enterprise)
If you are using GitHub Enterprise and have a custom domain, you can set it in the extension options page.
Mail View Shortcut
Customize the keyboard shortcut that triggers the
View on GitHub button. Change the shortcut combination by focusing the input, and press whatever key(s) you want to be the shortcut. It will be displayed in
keyCode which is why you see
71 here instead of
g. Don't worry about it.
To open and focus the new window right away (
