GitHub hidden feature

There is a mind-blowing GitHub feature or if I can call it a “secret”, that I’ve just discovered and I need to share with you all.


  • GitHub account


Step 1. Open a web browser and login to your GitHub account.

Step 2. Go to any repository you want, public or private if it’s yours, or you got the right permissions.

Step 3. Press THE DOT .

Step 4. BAM! Congratz! You just open a built-in GitHub IDE. GitHub IDE


Altought it’s a good feature, personally I wouldn’t use it, except in a situation where I don’t have access to my local dev machine, and need to do some quick, immediate updates on a GitHub repo.
