Sometimes you need a lightweight way to prefill a GitHub issue. I found myself in that position recently and wanted a quick-and-dirty way to generate an issue link with certain fields already filled out. I couldn’t find one.
I turned to the docs and realized that I needed a body with various pieces of formatting (like whitespace) and writing that into the URL parameter was hard.
I’m pretty lazy, so I did the only rational thing: I spent a few hours creating this tool so that I could save a few minutes just writing the URL by hand. 🔥🔥🔥
