I’ve got a repo which has a guide to work on ~50 other repos.
One of the things we have to do regularly is check for outstanding PRs, as well as see what the latest release version is.
Right now I have links in the guide, like this:
1. zoinks-test-utils [releases](https://github.example.com/zowie/zoinks-test-utils/releases/)⟦[latest](https://github.example.com/zowie/zoinks-test-utils/releases/latest)⟧ 🇵🇷 [PRs](https://github.example.com/zowie/zoinks-test-utils/pulls) ⽬ [develop POM](https://github.example.com/zowie/zoinks-test-utils/blob/develop/pom.xml)
which renders like this … well, no, I’m a new user so had to remove the first and last links:
The problem is that this means developers have to click on each link — 2 per repo — just to see the current latest release label and whether there are any open PRs (mostly there aren’t).
Something like a badge displaying the count of open PRs, or a yes/no flag, anything like that would be great. Since it’s all within the same GitHub (same org, even), there should be no need for authentication.
For the latest release, I’d just like the tag … via markdown that would evaluate an imagined API like
Unfortunately, the GitHub v3 ReST API and v4 GraphQL are unusable as such in Markdown (AFAIK).
Does anyone know of a GitHub app that will do either of these? Or some clever trick to avoid dozens of fruitless clicks?
