Chrome extension that adds useful features on GitHub website
- Displays repo size.
- Displays each file size for every active branch (not applicable for folder / symlink).
- Show download link for each individual file (not applicable for folder / symlink).
- Copy file's contents directly to Clipboard (just won't work for markdown files).
- Download file while viewing it's contents.
GitHub API Rate Limiting
Since this extension fetches data using GitHub public v3 API for showing file size and download_url, it consumes free quota which is very less GitHub API Rate Limiting.
To tackle this, create a new GitHub Access Token.
If logged-in, visit https://github.com/settings/tokens
Generate a new token, select
reposcope and create a one.
Copy and store the generated token which looks something like:
17c1a8d5b399d66b6212382d98d4c67a94d58955(a fake one :P).
Right click on enhanced-github extension and and click on
Optionsin the dropdown menu.
Enter the valid GitHub Access Token
SAVEand Enjoy the benefits.
This Chrome extension will automatically pick this valid access token and Bingo!
