A bookmarklet to quickly get you to the first commit of a repo.
Being able to quickly navigate to the oldest commit in a repo is quite helpful. Go ahead and drag the bookmarklet (link) onto your bookmark bar and click it whenever you'd like to go to the first commit of a repo.
Go to any particular repo's landing page
(e.g. like the one you're on) and click the bookmarklet, which will take you to the first page (initial commit). By default, it tracks the
master branch, but if you change the
branch on the landing page, it will go to that branch's first commit.
I'll probably build this into a browser extension soon, but for now, you can simply drag the bookmarklet to your bookmark bar and click it whenever you'd like.
Thanks to all of these people who've improved INIT for everyone:
