Alternatives to the Bitbucket sucky clone UI?

Are there any way to change the popup when trying to clone?
  1. You can't see the whole command or most of the url
  2. It is not a text box, selecting just the url is a pain


Anyone that is going to be entering the clone command in a console knows how to type it already, or they can go to the Bitbucket 101 link.  I always just want to copy the url.  Maybe I want to use another tool besides sourcetree.  Maybe I want to do a 'git remote set-url' or a 'git submodule add' with the repository url.

So selecting just the url requires:

  1. click on the pop-up (the clone button is selected when clicking on it)
  2. click on the textbox to deselect the entire command
  3. drag across the start of the url to outside the box and wait for it to scroll over
  4. move the mouse back onto the popup so the selection appears

I've just been doing that a lot lately and it is an irritation that builds up every time I have to do it.


  1. Make the popup wider so the whole url is visible
  2. place the url or command as text below the selected box so it can be selected without the extra clicks

This is a community site. I doubt we can provide you with any solutions that aren't far more complex than what you're already doing (manipulating the DOM to widen the text box, for example).
