Chrome Extension: Add a link to the SVN repo on WordPress plugin pages

When I browse WordPress plugins I often want to see the source, history, or something along those lines. Unfortunately the only link to anything close to that is a .zip file, even though each plugin has a corresponding SVN repo. Tonight I got tired of manually copying the slug, reminding myself of the SVN address, and navigating there. So I made a Chrome extension to add a fancy new button to those pages, right under the .zip download button, with a link to the plugin’s SVN repo.

You can install it in the Chrome Extensions MarketplaceAppWhateverTheyCallIt.

You can also see the extension’s source on Github.
