Summary

Conveniently get notified when you get a new notification on GitHub.com or a GitHub Enterprise instance with this extension. If you missed a notification, you can easily access the subject of the notification directly from a popup listing all unread notifications.

The button to open the panel shows a count of unread notifications. You can mark all notifications as read from within the panel or open GitHub's notification page.

You can authenticate as multiple GitHub.com and GitHub Enterprise users at once.

GitHub Authentification In order to get your notifications you have to authenticate the extension to access your GitHub notifications. The authentication is handled completely client-side and there is no third party server involved in it. The repo read and write permission is needed to display notifications for private repositories. This permission only has to be granted on organizations with private repositories that you need notifications for. In theory the extension only needs read access to determine issue title and similar. However GitHub only has a scope for read and write access.

You can also authenticate with a personal access token for GitHub.com. For enterprise installations you can always try to use OAuth, but no guarantees, while personal access tokens should work as well. The personal access tokens need at least the notifications permission, and if the notifications should be accurate for things in private repos, it also needs the repo permission.

GitLab and Gitea GitLab and Gitea support is fairly simple. For GitLab todos are shown as notifications, for Gitea it's notifications. Both of them require you to provide an access token as well as the base URL of the instance. The appearance will be identical to notifications from GitHub.
