GHSDD

A chrome extension to download any sub-directory or file from a Github repo .

Problem

Many a times you only want to download a subdirectory of a repo , for example when looking for a library you just want download the sample given along with it and not the whole repo , currently github's ui only provides downloading individual file or entire repo as zip and not subdirectory , this extension solves this problem, just paste sub-directory's github url it downloads(not clone) that for you .

Usage

  1. Download [zip] (https://github.com/charany1/GHSDD/archive/master.zip)
  2. Unzip it.
  3. Go to chrome://extensions in your browser.
  4. Check Developer Mode.
  5. Click on Load Unpacked Extensions and select directory containing unzipped files.
  6. You should see GHSDD in your extensions page and among extensions in top pannel.
  7. Test : Paste https://github.com/facebook/stetho/tree/master/stetho-sample in popup and get zip.
