CodebaseHQ Tickets+ for FireFox

What’s this? Another release already? Well yes. I’ve been working on this project, and we use Codebase for project management. And the whole time, I kept thinking, “Why can’t I sort these tickets?!”. Apparently, I’m not the only one, because I overheard some other people say the same thing so I decided to make a Greasemonkey script.

While there is a mechanism to sort, it requires modifying your search query and a page refresh. My script not only does all that live, but it also turns the search box into a live-search, which makes finding a particular ticket fast. To accompany all this, I also de-paginate the results so all the tickets are in one page. This could potentially cause problems, because some projects might have thousands of tickets; but that’s a problem for another day.

While I have been on a jQuery spree recently, I made sure not to use it for this Greasemonkey script. Even though there is a lot of DOM manipulation, I rely on Xpath and JavaScript 1.6 Arrays. The script is simple enough where it’s easy enough to convert to jQuery if needed.

If you use FireFox, Greasemonkey, and CodebaseHQ, Give CodebaseHQ Tickets+ a shot.
