Welp, I finally upgraded to Leopard today. And you know what that means… Fluid! Now that I can run standalone GitHub, I thought it would be fun to play with the provided JS API.

First up, your unread message count. We don’t have any polling stuff (yet), but it’ll update on every page load:

Also, if you hold down the GitHub icon there are some quick links available:

That’s it for now. I’m sure there will be more as both Fluid and GitHub grow. I’d love to figure out a way to add some useful Growl stuff.

Update: Want to try out the Thumbnail plugin on commits? Go to Preferences and click “Thumbnail,” then add these two rules:

http://github.com/*commits*  .human .message pre a
https://github.com/* .commit .message a

This’ll give you hot coverflow action for commits on your dashboard and any commit log page.
