Learn what any Github user sees when they visit Github

Have you ever wanted to know how a particular user of Github sees his timeline? Who does he follow, and what are the projects that he is starring? You can find out the answers to these questions using a really cool web application.

All you have to do is visit Get Timeline and write the username of a Github user and then will in just a matter of seconds see what they actually see when they visit Github. You do not have to sign up for an account to have this opportunity. Of course, this only includes public projects and also the projects that you are able to see and not every project that the user has access to. You are not able to see to which private repositories they are part of and what are they committing in there.

This can be a small tool, but it may prove useful for someone’s curiosity.

I believe that one of the best ways to learn is to learn from the best and seeing their commits and also the projects and the users that they are following is a really great way to get to have a grasp of the users and the activities in general that have grabbed their attention.

For example, if you want to see the Github timeline of the principal developer of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds, you simply need to write his username in there.

It is an open source application and you can see its source code as well.
