Lighthouse-style "Open in Browser" for GitHub

Reported by Chauncey | November 4th, 2014 @ 06:55 PM

I like the fact that MailMate can easily open Lighthouse tickets from MailMate. I use GitHub a lot and think it'd be great if there were a similar feature.

Each GitHub issue includes a url similar to the one below at the end of each message that could be used for parsing:

Reply to this email directly or view it on GitHub.

Where GitHub is a link to the issue, like so:


In looking at the mmbundle for Lighthouse, I don't think it'd be difficult to add and seems like the primary issue is working out the proper regex:

egrep -o "https://.*\.github\.com/[[:user:]]/[[:repo:]]+/issues/[[:digit:]]+[^ ]+"

I've done some regex searching before but I haven't seen the [[:digit:]] notation before, so I'm no sure if this is something new to me or a part of MailMate.
