#3 Product of the DayOctober 31, 2017

Insight.io for GitHub is a browser plugin for GitHub that enables you to navigate and search through repositories like it's in your IDE


  • Pros: 

    code search made it so much easier to navigate through your code!


    waiting for more support on PHP

    I am a software engineer at Google and I constantly use this tool known as CodeSearch at Google and I am a big fan of the product. insight.io seems to be expanding this concept to repositories on GitHub in general, pretty impressive work!

I didn't think this was possible, but sure makes more sense to view it like an IDE 😁

@erickbarron86 it's certainly not easy to do but we are working hard to make the experience as close to an IDE as possible:)
