o means open. Simple CLI tool to open repository in browser.

Tue, Aug 15, 2017 One-minute read

Here is my small bash function! When you run it from the terminal it opens the GitHub/BitBucket/GitLab page in your browser for the git repository you are currently in. It has a short simple name o. I find myself doing this quite a lot as I am working with multiple repositories at the same time and switching to a browser, searching for correct link, etc.

Just type o :)

How to install

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plutov/o/master/install.sh | sh


I have a plan to improve it to support remotes with usernames inside, and to support custom Git remotes. If you have more ideas you’re welcome on this GitHub page.
