Create a Chrome plugin using Grease monkey

JIRA Agile stand up timer screenshot

I was really excited to learn about native grease monkeysupport in chrome. This makes it a lot easier to share scripts with others. Give the javascript file .user.js extention and drag and drop it into the extensions panel in chrome settings to install.

I made a quick chrome plugin / grease monkey script to add a morning ‘stand up timer/count down’ to JIRA.

Unfortunately it wasn’t all smooth sailing. I soon learnt jQuery from the main website can’t be accessed from the  Grease monkey script, hence the” addJQuery(callback)”.
