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=""
  allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" width="502px" height="252px"></iframe>

Required Params

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.
