Octotree extension for Chrome

If you use Github a lot for browsing code, then you will find it irritating that it does not have a project explorer. That is, you want to explore the directory structure of a project and view the source code of the files by clicking through the directory structure. This is a standard feature in all IDEs and most editors.

Octotree provides just this useful feature to Github. This Chrome extension can be installed from here. Its source code is here.

On any Github project page, it gives a sidebar that shows the directory structure and you can click through to view the source code of any file in the project.

Tried with: Octotree 1.3.0, Chrome 35.0.1916.153 and Ubuntu 14.04
