UNOFFICIAL GITHUB LATEST COMMITS WIDGET
Show the latest commit activity on your repo, keeping the community updated and giving users more incentive to contribute to your project with this widget.
Inspired by https://github.com/markdotto/github-buttons
Check out a demo of the widget in action @ http://tylerlh.github.com/github-latest-commits-widget/?username=plataformatec&repo=devise&limit=10
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 only 3 params at the moment: username, repo, and limit.
<iframe src="http://tylerlh.github.com/github-latest-commits-widget/?username=USERNAME&repo=REPO&limit=LIMIT" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="502px" height="252px"></iframe>
GitHub username that owns the repo
GitHub repository to check for activity
The maximum number of results to list
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, jquery.timeago, and coffeescript. Will simplify this more and compile the coffeescript to js as time allows.
