At some point in history, the following sequence of events occurred:

  • GitHub announced personal pages hosted via Git repos
  • GitHub added a page generator
  • Bitbucket announced they support Git
  • Bitbucket offered personal pages via Bitbucket’s git repos
  • HubMe was created so that GitHub users had a way to generate good looking GitHub homepages
  • I saw this and thought it was cool
  • I wrote a JQuery plugin that consumes your Bitbucket repos and lets you do whatever you wanted with them.

And thus, Brkt.js – A terrible name for a simple, but effective foray into AJAX.
