Switch (back) to JIRA Mobile view bookmarklet

JIRA from Atlassin has a mobile view (in recent versions), which is optimised for use on a mobile device, supporting various actions such as setting comment security and so-forth.

Although it’s easy to switch from Desktop view to Mobile view (using the link at the bottom of the issue), going back to Mobile view isn’t so easy.

The following bookmarklet will modify the current page URL, replacing the word ‘browse’ with ‘plugins/servlet/mobile#’, thus reloading the page in mobile view. 

if your JIRA plugins are located at a different path, adjust the bookmarklet accordingly.

The bookmarklet code is simply:

javascript:(function() {window.location=window.location.toString().replace(‘browse’,’plugins/servlet/mobile#issue’);})()

On iOS in Safari, create a bookmark to any page, then edit the bookmark to point instead to the text shown above (javascript blah blah). When you paste the code, you might find some characters are replaced. If they are, edit the bookmark and carefully check each character to ensure it matches the above exactly.

To use this bookmarklet, when viewing a JIRA issue in desktop mode, click your Bookmarks button, then tab this bookmarklet. The page will be re-loaded in mobile view.

If it doesn’t work – check the text again. It has to be exact. If it still doesn’t work, don’t ask me – I made this and it works for me 🙂

See Dr Pamela Gay in Melbourne on September 12 and 13

Much to my delight, Dr Pamela Gay of AstronomyCast / CosmoQuest is coming to Melbourne, and thanks to some wonderful crowd-fundees, Swinburne University, Science on Top and Embiggen Books, you can come along to hear her speak.

There are two public events scheduled for Melbourne. The first is at Embiggen Books on Thursday 12th September at 7pm, and the second is at Swinburne University in Hawthorn on Friday 13th September at 6:30pm.

Bookings are essential for both events.

Tickets for the Embiggen presentation, a panel featuring Dr Gay, Dr Alan Duffy and science writer Sean Elliot, are available here for $20, although at the moment I’m writing this there are only 4 tickets left. Takings from this event will be donated to CosmoQuest.

Bookings for the Swinburne event, a public lecture by Dr Gay entitled “CosmoQuest: Science inside (powered by you!)” are free and can be made here.

After Melbourne, Dr Gay will head up to Sydney to participate in some events with the Australian Skeptics. Keep an eye on their website for information.

Special thanks also to New Zealand Skeptics for loaning Dr Gay to us following your national convention.

Dr Pamela Gay Melbourne trip kickstarter

We have some great news – Dr Pamela Gay, co-host of the hugely popular AstronomyCast podcast, head of CosmoQuest, AstroSphere and too many other awesome things to list here, is coming to Australia en-route back to the US after presenting at the NZ Skeptics Convention in September.

Planning is underway for one or two events in Melbourne (at least one will be free), which will feature Dr Gay and some other wonderful local Science educators, but WE NEED YOUR HELP!

To cover flights, accommodation and so-forth, we need to raise some funds, so I’m going to pass around the proverbial (virtual), hat. We need to raise $2,000 – $3,000 as quickly as possible – so please share this far and wide!

$670 pledged so far.

If you would like a chance to see Pamela live between September 12-13th, please pledge via this form. I’ll keep a tally of pledges, and once we reach a critical threshold, I’ll provide payment details so we can get the ball rolling. Any excess funds will be donated to AstroSphere.

Note: it has been pointed out that use of the term “kickstarter” may imply the involvement of the website of the same name. I have used the term generically, and that site is not involved.
