First off, what is a GitHub "insights link?" Well, it's a link that you can easily post or share and which will take the reader (or recipient) to a page packed with stats and insights for a specific GitHub repository.

With RepoTracker it's really easy to get such a link. You can just open the details page of any repository – either by selecting it from one of your collections if you are signed in already, or by heading over to the landing page and searching for a repo if you aren't – and then simply copy the URL from your browser.s

The links have the following structure:{owner}/{repo}

With that knowledge you can create insights links for any repository you like, just replace {owner} with the username of the account hosting the repo and {repo} with the repository name. Those are always the same as in the GitHub URL of the repository. For example becomes

Easy as that!

That's it, give it a try and start sharing!
