What is Octotree?

Browser extensions (Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera) to display GitHub code in tree format. Useful for developers who frequently read source in GitHub and do not want to download or checkout too many repositories.

What is CodeNav?

CodeNav is a Chrome extension and Firefox addon that makes navigating code on Github easier and more intuitive. It borrows features from popular IDEs for more seamless movement around code. Hover over a variable to highlight other references and visualize them on your scrollbar. Click a variable or object to search for other instances in the same project.

What is LMVTFY?

LMVTFY is a service that watches for new issues and new issue comments on a given GitHub repository. If the comments contain (links to) live Web examples (e.g. a jsFiddle), the example's HTML is extracted and run thru the HTML5 validator. If there are any validation errors, LMVTFY then posts a comment (such as this one) on the issue pointing out these errors, so that the poster may correct them and/or realize the error of their ways.
