github1s One second to read GitHub code with VS Code

Github1s stands for One second to read GitHub code with VS Code

Today I discovered a small project on GitHub that allows you to easily read a git repository in VSCode without cloning it.

👉 Github1s allows you to read a GitHub project with an online version of VSCode.

👉 You just need to add 1s after GitHub and press Enter in browser address bar for any repository you want to read.

For example, for the repository https://github.com/matchabot/matcha-bot

You can add 1s to GitHub and the address becomes https://github1s.com/matchabot/matcha-bot

The project is available at https://github.com/conwnet/github1s

Enjoy 🎉

github.surf
this works same as github1s, but i like it more for no reason lol. (also supports gitlab and CLI features)

e.g. github.surf/matchabot/matcha-bot

source: github.com/bridgedxyz/github.surf

Online IDE hasn't largely successful and popular.

cloud9 and there.

Interesting, and good luck to move engineers to use online VSCode.
As VSCode is trusted by a huge community we believe this is the first step in move up the development community to cloud.

This is amazing.
Finally a way to search the code globally without cloning the repo
