Chrome-Stats extension


  • Auto-runs when viewing a user's page on LinkedIn, retrieves their README and repos from Github via the GraphQL API, and renders them on the page
  • Auto-guesses the user's Github username from their LinkedIn profile

Note: Current implementation is simple; the extension gets the github url from the 'Contact Info' section of the user's LinkedIn page. If no url is found, it shows 'Not found'. Future implementation will be a bit exhaustive by including a search page with the user's name, and an option to search a github username/url directly


  • show search page: textbox, auto-search user's name (+use regex to extract username if url)
  • browser cache
  • toggle auto-load on/off
  • show loading image
  • tests
  • api/server cache
