Build Status 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.


HomeBrew (preferred for MacOS)

If you use Homebrew, you can install git-browse through the homebrew-albertyw tap:

brew install albertyw/albertyw/git-browse


If you don't use Homebrew, first clone this repository to somewhere on your system (perhaps in your dotfiles repository), then run <REPOSITORY_LOCATION>/


$ git browse -h
'browse' is aliased to '!~/.dotfiles/scripts/git/git-browse/git_browse/ --path=${GIT_PREFIX:-./}'
usage: [-h] [--path PATH] [-d] [-s] [-g] [-v] [target]
