Fork all of the things.
What is this?
Couldn’t sleep, saw a tweet:
@kentcdodds Now wouldn’t it be cool, if you could go into a repo in your node_modules and run `npm fork` and it would fork it on github.

made it so.
First, you need an access token from github so forked can log out in you can find instructions for thathere
Then add it to your
.bashrc file, or whatever you use to manage your env variables:
Then install the module:
$ npm i -g forked
Dive into some random node module:
$ cd node_modules/react
Run the command:
If it worked, you should be able to see the fork on GitHub.
Currently doesn’t work on some repositories. Had some weird redirect issues and such, but about 80% of the repos I tried worked, so that’s nice. If you find a bug please document it in the issues.
