GithubFinder: JavaScript-powered Github repo browser

For those times you need to quickly browse a GitHub repo but don’t want to clone it locally, check out GitHubFinder from Alex Le.


Modeled after the Mac OSX finder, GitHubFinder provides a familiar drill-down navigation to browse all the files in a given repo. The project has a plugin-based architecture for extensibility and includes keyboard navigation, file diffs, basic syntax highlighting, and a resizable, panel-based interface out of the box.

Written in JavaScript as part of the 10K Apart Contest, the app uses the same JSONP API we use here on The Changelog and weighs in at just 8.5KB compressed. Bravo, Alex!
