A LIFE-SAVING GitHub Feature that you need to know RIGHT NOW!

Ever browsed a Github repository and felt the pain of not being able to view the code without having to download the entire repository?

It's huge pain, especially when you simply want to look through the code.

Wouldn't it be great if we could simply view the code while browsing without having to download the entire repo?

Well, this problem has been solved! A great tool that will help you to view the code on the go, that too, in one of our favorites and powerful code editor, VS Code!

Wondering how to do it?

You can do this in just 3 steps:

Step 1 - Go to any GitHub repository
For Example:

https://github.com/iamrohitsuthar/quizller

Step2 - Just put 1s in the between of Github and .com in the address bar and see the magic happen.

Step 3 - Wow! The repository opens in an online VS Code editor!
