I, like a lot of developers, love Github. I treat my account a bit like a business card for myself and brochure for what I can do. Whenever the time rolls around to look for a new job, having a few interesting project in there helps a lot during and after the interview.
The problem however is, that some of the work I do is in pull requests to other projects. After my pull request is either accepted or rejected I usually delete my fork of the project because I want my project list to be clean and free of stuff of which I am merely a small time contributor. There is no way on the Github website itself to list a user’s past pull requests.
So, in order to show off the pull requests I have done, I coded up a little widget (needs jQuery) which pulls the information out of the API and displays it. So, without much further ado, here it is.
If you want to know how to use it yourself, check out the “marketing website”, which has instructions about adding it to your website.
