Launching GitHub Confirm It!

πŸ§žβ€β™‚οΈ Idea

Whenever we have to perform any action in from the Danger Zone section of GitHub repository options, such as:

  • Change Visibility
  • Transfer Ownership
  • Archive Repository
  • Delete Repository

It asks to write username/repository-name. It's tedious to write it every time you perform any of these actions or want to quickly get done with it. That's why I created this extension, which lets you quickly type that thing for you and perform the action. Just a single click away.

🎯 GitHub Confirm It

GitHub Confirm It is a Chrome extension that allows you to quickly add a repository name to confirm actions on GitHub with just a single click. It helps you stay productive by saving your time and helping you focus on what matters. Secure and Open Source.

πŸ”† Getting Started

Below are the quick steps to get up and running with this extension.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Installation

Download it from Chrome Store. It will add a button inside your input box to quickly insert the text.

🎯 In Action

Go to the Settings of your repository, under the Danger Zone heading, click on any action. You'll notice the small insert text icon in your input. Click on it to insert the text. A quick GIF for you:

πŸ“‹ Permissions

Only requires content_script permission which only runs on the settings page of your repository.

πŸ”₯ ProducHunt

It's on ProductHunt as well. Go checkout!

That's exactly what I used to do. But I found it tedious to every time select the username/repo-name and then copy-paste it. With this, I get the job done in a single click.

Neat little trick Saqib but just a quick suggestion that asking for upvotes on Product Hunt is against their TOS:

Do you by any chance understand why GitHub asks you intentionally to manually type this in and not check a checkbox saying "I am sure"?
