Use Githubbox to easily create a new CodeSandbox from Github

Dominik Ferber (@dferber90) created a nifty tool that allows you to easily take a Github project link and spin up a new CodeSandbox.

Take any Github repo:
URL: https://github.com/colbyfayock/gatsby-starter-leaflet

Change github.com to githubbox.com:
URL: https://githubbox.com/colbyfayock/gatsby-starter-leaflet

And you’re done! :tada:

This is great. Thanks for sharing!

I was appending https://codesandbox.io/embed/github/{github-user}/{repo-name} for example: https://codesandbox.io/embed/github/laurosilvacom/vanilla-template

Have you seen An egghead Guide to Productivity?

My favorite trick was creating lesson templates, creating before-after branch, and putting all of that into CodeSandbox.

I also took some notes on this playlist. In case someone finds them helpful, I’ll post them here. :raised_hands:

Yeah! I poked through a few of them, some good stuff. I haven’t yet tried to create a template, need to figure that out still.
