GitHub Pull Request against the current branch
View !


GitHub helpfully prompts you to create a pull request after pushing a new branch. Unhelpfully, it always suggests PRing against master (or develop or whatever your main branch is). This Tampermonkey/ Greasemonkey script adds a "Compare & pull request (current branch)" button that will bring you to the PR creation page already comparing against the branch you're currently on.


How To:

  1. Install the Tampermonkey extension for Chrome or Greasemonkey extension for Firefox
View config.yaml
- form: '###$x.'
num: A
- form: '####$x.'
num: 1
- form: '#####($x)'

ES Sense Error Formatter User Script

This user script (aka greasemonkey script) adds a "Print Error" button to the upper right corner of Marvel Sense. (It's a ! with a circle around it.)

When clicked, it looks in the output pane and checks if the body of the output looks like an ES error. If it does, it'll display it in a slightly more readable form (adds pretty line breaks, etc.).

Subsequent clicks of the Print Error button will update the error message if the content in the output has changed or hide the error message if the content in the output doesn't look like an error.

Use Greasemonkey in Firefox or Tamplermonkey in Chrome to install it.


Developer Cheat Sheets

This are my cheat sheets that I have compiled over the years. Tired of searching Google for the same things, I started adding the information here. As time went on, this list has grown. I use this almost everyday and this Gist is the first bookmark on my list for quick and easy access.

I recommend that you compile your own list of cheat sheets as typing out the commands has been super helpful in allowing me to retain the information longer.
