Yoke uses OAuth2 and secure REST APIs to connect to GitHub.
You can also create cards based on GitHub issue-search strings that query the entire GitHub issues database.
A machine learning algorithm figures out the typical time taken to act on an issue or merge a pull request, and warns you if something has not been addressed for longer than usual.
You can query your GitHub cards from Slack using slash commands.
The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension turns the issues and pull requests picked up by your GitHub cards into bookmarks in Chrome.
Choose between the shared repository model or fork-and-pull model for each repo that you own. If you select the latter model, the open pull-request card will help track repositories that use the fork-and-pull model.
If you are active in open-source projects, you can use the notifications card to keep track of your collaborators.
GitHub Issues may appear to be too simple, but you can go a long way with tags and searches. Check out some of the best practices for issue tagging.
You can use GitHub's search feature to create cards to track specific groups of issues. For instance,
type:issue is:open assignee:jeresig will search for all open issues assigned to John Resig. This is especially useful if you contribute to multiple open-source projects.
