Overview

To list GitHub forks ordered by stars, with additional information and automatic filtering of irrelevant ones.

The plugin inserts a button next to the "Fork" button when you visit a GitHub repository. Clicking on it will open a new tab which will use the online tool to scan the forks. This tool aims at increasing the discoverability of useful forks of open-source projects. The criteria is simple: if a fork was created, but never received any other activity on its main branch, it is filtered out. For sharing: the results can be exported as CSV, or you can point people to the quick-link URL.
