GitHub Repository Explorer is a simple and free Google Chrome Extension that allows you to access all the GitHub repositories that you have visited in the past. The Explorer fetches the list of repositories from your browser history. If they are not present over there, the extension enables you to search them from GitHub.
The Extension uses Chrome Omnibox which is what you see as a search box in the Chrome Browser. Technically, it is an API that provides a 3rd party extension to customize the suggestions that are displayed when the user inputs a defined keyword.
GitHub Repository Explorer streamlines your GitHub experience by offering an easy access to your frequently and recently visited repositories and eliminates the hassle of searching never ending lists.
How it Works:
1. Install GitHub Repository Explorer using the link that we have provided at the end of this article.
2. Once the installation has been completed, simply type ‘repo’ followed by a ‘tab’ in your browser’s search bar. This activates the Chrome Omnibox and will launch a list of your recently accessed Repositories.
3. As mentioned earlier, if the repo is not present in the browser history, the extension will search and fetch it directly from GitHub. You can even type a few keywords to locate the exact repository that you are searching for.
GitHub Repository Explorer allows you to easily and quickly access the GitHub repositories that you have visited in the past. It is a handy tool for users who work with a lot of repositories that they need to access frequently.
