This is great. Thanks for sharing!

I was appending{github-user}/{repo-name} for example:

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.
