    Very neat, obviously no active development. But the code is available so I am sure someone could fork and update it. https://github.com/madgnome/jirachievements

    Great plugin. But some of the rewards don't seem to register (e.g. "I can haz complex query" or "Use keyboard shortcuts at least 10 times").
