Bookmarklet to view source for a GitHub Pages site

Do you ever come across some site hosted on GitHub Pages with a URL like and you look around but the link to the source repository is nowhere to be found?

I have a bookmarklet that opens the source in a new tab directly. It works for GitLab Pages as well. Sometimes this comes in very handy:

javascript: (() => {
  const getRepo = (urlObj) => {
    const [user, site,] ='.');
    const repo = urlObj.pathname.split('/')[1] || `${user}.${site}.io`;
    return `https://${site}.com/${user}/${repo}`;
