How to Install Git Browser on Kodi

>

In this guide, I will show you how to install Git Browser on Kodi 18.5 and lower versions. The method demonstrated works on all Kodi supported platforms, which include, but not limited to, Amazon FireStick, Windows PC, Mac, Android Smartphones and more.

GitHub is the most widely used version control hosting service and free software distribution platform. It hosts hundreds of thousands of codes and software programs from software development companies and independent developers. GitHub is also one of the most popular hosts to Kodi addon repositories.

One way to install repositories on Kodi is to point Kodi to the GitHub server with the corresponding URL of the repositories. The other way is to get the Git Browser and download the repositories directly from the source. Installing the repositories directly makes things somewhat easy. In this tutorial, you will learn to install Git Browser from the Indigo Kodi addon. I will also show you how to get started with it.

Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue

Kodi Addons / builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).

I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

how git browser works on kodi

Git Browser is easier for you to install repositories and add-ons that are hosted on the GitHub platform. Instead of going through the long-drawn process of adding the source and installing the repo, you may install the repository directly from the source. Even though Git Browser is not the most popular way to download addons and repos, I believe it is one of the best ways to do it.
