GitHub compare helper
Item media 1 screenshot


Adds UI to GitHub commits pages to easier create GitHub compare urls

Manually typing the GitHub compare url takes too much time. Use this simple UI add-on to do it much faster! Note: Works the same way GitHub compare urls are normally generated i.e. from the first SHA of a commit to (but not including) the last SHA of a commit. This means the generated compare url will, for branches, include the top selected commit but not the last selected commit (but the commit before). For pull requests it is the opposite. NEW! Now also works on pull requests! ----------------------------------------------------- Source: Thanks and for pull request contributions!

I was actually just starting to learn how to make a Chrome extension just for this, but I found this in the nick of time. Thanks!! It works perfectly. EDIT: Recently with the GitHub redesign this tool doesn't show its check marks anymore making it unusable

Seems to work well from the commits page for a repo. I was hoping it would work for the commits page for a Pull Request, but it does not.
