Introducing Git Random


Today is the day I am launching a new site called Git Random. The idea came from the fact that there are millions of repositories on GitHub and it’s nearly impossible to search them all. I would always stumble upon repositories that I thought were interesting and useful from sites other than GitHub.

Git Random is a simple web app that randomly pulls a repository from GitHub and displays its README file.

Git Random is both entertaining and a great way to kill time. Whether you are waiting on PHP to compile, a Capistrano deploy, or a Chef-Client run to finish, why not find a new and interesting repository?

You can follow me on Twitter to keep updated with what is happening on Git Random or check back on this blog.

I love hearing feedback. Do not hesitate to tell me what you think. If you have a comment or suggestion, I’m all ears. You can contact me through the contact form that I setup on the site.

It’s been a blast building this so far and I’m excited for what is to come for this little web app. I hope you enjoy it.
