Defrustrating the ThoughtWorks Go User Interface

At work we are currently using Go as our build server. While it has excellent features for creating build and deployment pipelines the user interface is somewhat lacking. However it is a reasonably hackable web application. So my colleagues Greg and Ben went ahead and wrote a userscript for firefox/ chrome that adds links pointing to the respective config entry to the build result pages and that colourises the build console output by parsing ansi sequences.

It is called go-defrustrator and is available from github.
