Description from store Why GitZip: - You DO NOT have to download the whole project just for those few files/folders you need. Usage: 1. Browse any Github repository page. 2. Two ways to download: 2.1. Choose the items: 2.1.1. In default, you can double click on items or check the checkbox on the front of items. 2.1.2. Click download button at the bottom-right of the page. 2.2. In context menu: 2.2.1. Click "GitZip Download" > "Whole Repository" or "Current Folder". 2.2.2. Move the mouse cursor on the item and click "GitZip Download" > "Selected Folder/File". 2.2.3. Click "GitZip Download" > "Checked Items" after doing 2-1-1. 3. See the progress dashboard and wait for browser trigger download. 4. Get the ZIP file. Options: "How to select" for item selecting behaviour and "theme" for dark or light themes.

  • (2022-06-02) Jason Wang: Doesn't work. Message: Collect blob urls... and Cannot GET /gettoken/authorize/
  • (2022-05-25) Tomo K: It's good, but it would be better if the single folder is in zip file, not all files. The flow would be better: 1. Download 2. Open zip from statusbar 3. Drop the folder on Desktop Currently it's more steps: 1. Download 2. Open zip from statusbar 3. Create folder in Desktop 4. Drop all files to the folder

  • (2022-01-01) Useless Account: Works as advertised, perfect to download certain folders in my archive. Only improvement that I would like to see is a better way to select items than "double click in an empty area"

  • (2021-02-10) MyID Wildream: not work
  • (2021-01-22) Brandon Bachman: The interface — or lack thereof — makes it difficult to use at first without instructions. It wouldn't have hurt to had added a button with some javascript to download the directory as archive / .zip and have it work that way. Aside from that, it's a great piece of software that can help to make life easy for many. The problem with this extension, or rather its presentation is the lack of good English writing skills. I am sure you are a technologically-adept individual, savvy and knowledgeable with all things software but the way it's presented — with such poor English grammar — reeks of scam, and you should consider hiring a consultant, or at the very least requesting assistance from a friend to re-write / proofread your English writ so it doesn't look like you're some tech scammer. That might sound insensitive, and it may appear like racial profiling, but there are people who will see the poor grammar and not see past that enough to realize this is legitimate software with a novel purpose. For observers reading this, GitZip is good! Just kind of sucks presentation and the lack of an interface button within GitHub lets it down a bit but it works!

  • (2020-11-02) Darren Ying: Close Adblock, if your download process stopped at 99%, you can just find the file on your disk and change its filename to '.zip'. Then click and unzip it, you will find the file available. Hope this tip also works for you!
  • (2020-10-21) Co_ co: 已经授权了,并且填写taken了,但是无论怎么双击还是无法触发下载按钮;在页面空白处:右击-->download [xxx] as zip ,也没有任何反应。 不清楚怎么用的,有朋友可以帮忙下吗?
  • (2020-10-20) Yuppie Paucar: It was perfect up until today. For some reason it does not download anymore. I never had an adblocker, did not add one, and also tried to restart Chrome. I'm on latest version of Chrome and this extension. Maybe something on the GitHub side changed?
  • (2020-10-20) Dmitry Kudrin: Does not work. AdBlock is switched off
  • (2020-09-23) lin he: I follow the page tip re-login ,and switch off AdGuard , reload the page , but Bad credentials still occur.
  • (2020-09-13) Sabrina Rosario: Love it! I was downloading an entire folder, scratching my head as to why I couldn't download the specific folder I wanted instead of the whole thing which took me ages. You have to turn off your AdBlocker first, refresh the page and then double click on whatever folder you want to download. If you don't turn off the AdBlocker then the download will just stay frozen and it will never even begin to download.

  • (2019-10-27, v:0.3.2) Hiren Vadagama: Add bright icon for dark chrome themes
    Currently the icon for the extension is black. I am using the dark theme in my system and so Chrome is also in dark mode. The icon is invisible in dark background. Please add option for user to switch dark or bright icon or add support to switch the icon based on browser theme selected. For example, I use this other extension : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/window-resizer/kkelicaakdanhinjdeammmilcgefonfh They have option to select dark, bright or mix sort of icon to display. Thank you.
  • (2019-09-22, v:0.3.2) David Rigby: Rate Limit exceeded
    On my second attempt to download, I got the "rate limit" warning. The below extract from GitZip Overview describes what to do if this happens. However, when I click on the GitZip icon, I don't see the Get Token menu option. There is an "Options" menu item but it is greyed out. Hope the developer sees this .......... or should I be posting it in "Support" ......... the tab for which I have just seen. Get Token: - If you see the "Rate Limit" warning message on progress dashboard, you should get the Github API access token for upgrade rate limit. GitZip provide a convenient way for it: 1. Click GitZip Extension icon on your browser. 2. Click "Normal" or "Private" link beside "Get Token". 3. Authorize GitZip permission on Github auth page. 4. Back to repo page of the beginning. 5. Continue to use.

  • (2019-01-09, v:0.3.0) Salvatore Vilella: Cannot see gitzip icon when on Github pages
    The extension works, I am able to download folders and single files, but when I am in a github page I'm not able to see the extension icon near the address bar. On every other page different than Github, the icon is there. This becomes a problem when I reach the API query limit, since I cannot follow the procedure to get or insert the API key. I'm on MacOS Mojave, Macbook Pro 2018, Chrome browser.
