Working around MyQ's partner integration limitations

Working around MyQ's partner integration limitations

I got a new home recently. And for the first time in my life, I have a garage! And a smart garage door to boot! However, if I want to integrate the rest of my stuff into it (like IFTTT or the Google Assistant), I have to pay $10. Per year. Per integration. You can sort of get around that by setting up a Google Assistant applet in IFTTT (two integrations for the price of one), but when I tried their free one month trial, it turns out you can't even use their partner integrations to open your garage door-- only to close it. Lame sauce.

Make Jira's Agile Board look like Trello

Make Jira's Agile Board look like Trello

Do you love the simple, easy-to-use, good-looking interface of Trello? But are you instead forced to use the ugly, complicated "polar bear in a snow storm" Jira agile board for your planning, grooming, and standups? Then this is the pill that just might help you survive, allowing you to use Jira's clunky agile board without giving up your sanity.

To start improving your Atlassian experience, use the browser plugin of your choice to inject the CSS code below into your Jira page (Chrome users: I have really enjoyed this extension if you don't have one already).

Extra credit

Hate Jira's annoying issue editing sidebar that takes precious column space and is too squished to appreciate your ticket anyway? And hate it when you click the ticket title and Jira redirects you to another page? You
