The team and I have been working on a little web app that centers around GitHub issue creation. We’re calling it Gitdone and it allows you to quickly create issues while you’re in a meeting or doing QA.
Several months ago while I was on a conference call I had to create a bunch of issues for the final sprint of a build out.
It took me a lot of clicks on GitHub’s interface adding one issue at a time. Tabbing through fields on GitHub doesn’t help to speed things up either because certain controls require a mouse click (assignee/milestone). After expressing my frustration to the guys, we decided to see if we could come up with a better way.
Now with Gitdone it’s easy to quickly add issues without your fingers ever leaving the keyboard. List out a bunch of issues at once while you’re taking notes on a call, and then come back to add detail. Once you’re ready you can bulk submit everything at once. All on one screen.
We’re still making tweaks and improvements, but feel free to share with your friends or co-workers if you find it useful. We’d love some feedback so shoot us your questions or comment below and tell us what you think!
