Best Github shortcut ever

Today I watched this awesome talk and it blew my mind. I never knew how many secret features github actually has. The talk is rather long, so let me just highlight the best shortcuts mentioned.

My favorite one by far is the t shortcut. Go to a github repo, press t and start typing a file name. It will list all the files that match your query. You can even use the arrow keys to select a file. Is this awesome or what?

Github is awesome

You can also put .diff or .patch to any url that contains a diff and it will generate a plain text diff, or you can add ?w=1 to ignore whitespaces changes. l allows you to jump to a specific line while w helps you switch between a branch or a tag.

These are many other shortcuts and you can list them all by pressing ?.
