GitHub hosts millions of software repositories, facilitating developers to contribute to many projects in multiple ways. Most of the information about the repositories is text-based in the form of stars, forks, commits, and so on. However, developers willing to contribute to projects on GitHub often find it challenging to select appropriate projects to contribute to or reuse due to the large number of repositories present on GitHub. Further, obtaining this required information often becomes a tedious process, as one has to carefully mine information hidden inside the repository. To alleviate the effort intensive mining procedures, researchers have proposed npm-badges to outline information relating to build status of a project. However, these badges are static and limit their usage to package dependency and build details. Adding visual cues such as badges to the repositories might reduce the search space for developers. Hence, we present \textit{GitQ}, to automatically augment GitHub repositories with badges representing information about source code and project maintenance. Presenting \textit{GitQ} as a browser plugin to GitHub could make it easily accessible to developers using GitHub. \textit{GitQ} is evaluated with 15 developers based on the UTAUT model to understand developer perception towards its usefulness. We observed that 11 out of 15 developers perceived \textit{GitQ} to be useful in identifying the right set of repositories using visual cues such as generated by \textit{GitQ}. The source code and tool are available for download on GitHub at https://github.com/gitq-for-github/plugin, and the demo can be found at https://youtu.be/c0yohmIat3A.
