Getting To Travis and GitHub URLs in a Hurry

Disclaimer: I'm sure this functionality exists elsewhere, but this was a fun little thing for me to work on. Also, you'll need a minimum of git 2.7 for this to work.

Often, when I'm working locally I like to bounce right over to a GitHub repository url to check something. I ended up writing a bit of code to make this easier. While I was at it, I decided it would be nice to have the same thing for Travis URLs. So, I've released this as part of Git::Helpers.

When you're inside a Git repository, you can use gh-open to open a browser window with the GitHub URL of your repository. gh-open also accepts an origin name as an argument, so
gh-open upstream
would open a tab in your default browser containing your upstream's URL, assuming you have an origin by that name. Don't specify a remote name and it will assume origin:
gh-open
It doesn't currently care which branch you're on, but patches welcome (in the kindest sense of the expression). If you want to check your Travis page for the repository then travis-open will do the same kind of thing. It also accepts an origin name, just as gh-open does:
travis-open upstream
or defaults to origin if you don't:
travis-open
