TVAddons Release Git Browser
The TVAddons team released a new GitHub Browser plugin to ease the installation of Kodi TV addons that are hosted at GitHub . Then, TVAddons changed the name to Git Browser when GitHub objected to their name’s inclusion. The Git Browser brings TVAddons closer to keeping their promise to “change how people access streaming media forever.” he new Git Browser makes the browsing and installation of most Kodi addons a breeze, requiring just a bit of research. The GitHub Browser makes it possible to install any Kodi addon from a GitHub repository. TVAddons reports this release attempts to make the Kodi TVAddons community “more resilient and decentralized.”
As a web-based platform, GitHub focuses on git distributed version control and source code management, but they go far beyond that. GitHub hosts millions of public and private software development projects. This includes projects from Microsoft, IBM, Facebook, Google, and even NASA.
Most Kodi developers also make their home on GitHub. Before this addon was released, that potentially made finding your favorite Kodi TV addons both easy and difficult at the same time.
What is GitHub?
The GitHub website is a hosting service for open-source projects and much more. As such, it provides access to various Kodi repositories along with millions of other development projects. Currently, it has almost 28 million users and hosts about 57 million repositories. It is the largest host of source code in the world and not going away anytime soon.
All Kodi developers are volunteers and GitHub users. When launching a new repository or addon, they upload their repository zip file or addon plugin file to GitHub. You can always download the repository directly on Kodi Krypton 17.6, even if the URL link is not working at that moment. Repos and addons are taken offline quite often due to allegations of piracy. This is one of the many reasons the Surfshark VPN is so necessary when using Kodi.

Using the new GitHub Browser from TVAddons enables anyone to install many Kodi addons. This ease of using the Git Browser depends greatly on your Kodi ability level and googlefoo . If a developer makes their home on GitHub (most do), the GitHub Browser can find their work. It then fetches repos, builds, and TV addons from the developer’s own GitHub repository.
The GitHub Browser gives users a seemingly endless choice of TV addons. It also gives independent developers a very easy way to distribute their addons. Aligning themselves with groups or communities for distribution. Developers sharing their GitHub usernames will make their Kodi TV addons discoverable.
What is Kodi TVAddons GitHub Browser?

Kodi TVAddons GitHub Browser Advantages

Git Browser & The Curse of Icarus (or the Ares Project, Revisited?)
We can hope this new project takes off without becoming its own centralized point of failure. This happened to the Ares Project around the time their Ares Portal Kodi addon was released. The Ares Portal was the Ares Project’s brand new shopping basket Kodi TV addon installer. Many hailed it as a long-awaited, revolutionary new way to install Kodi TV addons. Outside forces pulled it down and plunged it into obscurity soon after launch. Popularity led to the ultimate failure and death of the entire Ares Project.
TVAddons do seem much more tenacious in standing their ground against those who would bring them down. The TVAddons fight has lasted nearly a year against litigious parties mistaking the provision of entertainment tools as the intentionally malicious enablement of pirates.
The TVAddons team tied the GitHub Browser to their Indigo Tool. This seems to point at a few possibilities for failure in the future.
Enjoy the Git Browser from TVAddons while it lasts, and hope it lasts a good long time.
