What is GitHub?

GitHub is a hosting service website, which is home for various Kodi repositories and other similar files. Currently, it has almost 20 million users and hosts about 57 million repositories. You can find any zip files concerning any software or application; you can easily get it from GitHub.

All Kodi developers are GitHub users, and as soon as they launch any repository or an add-on, they would upload their repository zip file or add-on plugin file in GitHub. You can always download the repository directly on your Kodi Krypton 17.6, even if the URL link is not working.

What is a GitHub Browser Kodi?

GitHub Browser comes inside Indigo Kodi add-on. Indigo was once a popular add-on until Fusion Kodi Repository was forced to shut down by the authorities. GitHub Browser Kodi allows you to install Kodi add-ons or repositories directly from GitHub.

When you have installed GitHub on Kodi, you will be presented with 3 options. You can search an add-on by the name of its repository, the name of its developers, or you can search it with the add-on name itself. Once you find the add-on you were looking for, just simply click on it and install directly on your Kodi without going through a lengthy procedure.

Advantages of Using GitHub Browser Kodi

We have outlined number of different benefits of using GitHub Browser, provided below:

No Need to Memorize Repository Source

You will not find any need of remembering repository sources and installing it from the zip file option in Kodi. Instead, you can install GitHub Browser and type the name of the repository or add-on you wish to install and get it on your Kodi.

Saves you a Lot of Kodi Space

When you add repository sources in File Manager, it consumes a lot of space on your Kodi. This is one reason why Kodi users face buffering issues in Kodi because their Kodi space is well consumed with repository sources that you’ve installed. GitHub Browser will save you a lot of space because it doesn’t require you to download source, but it directly installs an add-on.

More Freedom for Kodi Developers

Kodi add-on developers can easily distribute their add-ons on GitHub without sharing their repository link. This would prevent frequent shutting down of Kodi repositories and add-ons which is a big relief in part of Kodi users and Kodi developers.
