In this post I want to share a little way I extended Embark so that I could quickly navigate from Jira tickets to its corresponding URL. For this, you should have Embark installed. The extension is as follows:
(defvar jira-prefix "WORK") (defun jira-link () "Target a JIRA link of the form WORK-#." (save-excursion (let* ((beg (progn (skip-chars-backward "[:alnum:]-") (point))) (end (progn (skip-chars-forward "[:alnum:]-") (point))) (str (buffer-substring-no-properties beg end))) (save-match-data (when (string-match (format "\\(%s-[[:digit:]]+\\).*" jira-prefix) str) `(url ,(format "https://reifyhealth.atlassian.net/browse/%s" (match-string 1 str)) ,beg . ,end)))))) (use-package embark :ensure t :bind ;; ... bindings here ... :init ;; ... init config here ... :config ;; ... config here ... (add-to-list 'embark-target-finders #'jira-link))
Just set jira-prefix to you ticket prefix and it should work.
