For convenience, we developed a Gitpod browser extension. It adds a button to GitHub, GitLab or Bitbucket that does the prefixing for you - as simple as that.

Browser Extension

We provide the extension for:

  • Chrome - also works for Edge, Brave and other Chromium-based browsers.
  • Firefox

Use with Gitpod Self-Hosted

If you are using Gitpod Self-Hosted you can still use the browser extension by configuring it with your self-hosted URL.

After you have installed the extension go to the options panel and enter your Gitpod Self-Hosted URL.

A user can view an extension’s options by right-clicking the extension icon in the toolbar then selecting options or by navigating to the extension management page at chrome://extensions, locating the desired extension, clicking Details, then selection the options link.
