Get current project key in Javascript when Issues tab in project view is selected


I have a javascript resource that is loaded when the user clicks on the Issues tab in the project sidebar ( When the resource is loaded a function is executed which needs to know what the key of the project is. How can I find out the key of the project at this point?

The project key shows on all your issues and in the URL as projectKey=XXXX from your project when viewing a board, but issues is not representative of just one project, so you won't see it from that view.
