new-github-issue-url

Generate a URL for opening a new GitHub issue with prefilled title, body, and other fields

GitHub supports prefilling a new issue by setting certain search parameters. This package simplifies generating such URL.

Install

$ npm install new-github-issue-url

Usage

const newGithubIssueUrl = require('new-github-issue-url');
const open = require('open');

const url = newGithubIssueUrl({
	user: 'sindresorhus',
	repo: 'new-github-issue-url',
	body: '\n\n\n---\nI\'m a human. Please be nice.'
});
//=> 'https://github.com/sindresorhus/new-github-issue-url/issues/new?body=%0A%0A%0A---%0AI%27m+a+human.+Please+be+nice.'

// Then open it
(async () => {
	await open(url);
})();

Try the URL
(Don't click the "Submit new issue" button!)
