Codeship Status for albertyw/git-browse Dependency Status Code Climate Test Coverage

Open repositories, directories, and files in the browser. See also, git-reviewers.

This is a script that can be added as a gitconfig alias to easily browse repositories on Git hosting services (e.g. github). It is built to model arcanist's browse command. It is specifically designed to have no dependencies so it should be easily installable and very portable.

If you're looking to browse different github repositories, you might like hub browse.
