This post is a note that includes my thoughts about something I found online. Check it out yourself!

Okay, I found something exceptionally cool! Ready?

How often do you browse GitHub, find an exciting project and wished that you could navigate the included source code quickly? GitHub added a lot of shortcuts and stuff over the years, but how great would it be if you could open files side-by-side, cmd-click to jump into a function definition and maybe even use some shortcuts that your fingers type every day?

That all seems to be offered by github1s. Here's how it works. When you're on a GitHub repository github.com/someperson/someproject add 1s to the URL (github1s.com/someperson/someproject) and boom! Find VS Code in your browser ready to inspect some code. 🤯👏

Edit: There's also github.surf which seems to be a fork of github1s.com. I couldn't figure out what's the difference or why there was a need for a fork, though. 🤷‍♂️
