Octo.cat shortens URLs. If those URLs happen to be Github repositories and you happen to be on a mobile device, it shows you a nice and optimized version.

It is optimized for

  • readability - it has proper viewport-width set, so text is legible
  • speed - the repository page has no javascript and minimal css

Octo.cat is not affiliated with Github, Inc.
