12 cool things you can do with GitHub

When you’re in GitHub, looking at a file (any text file, any repository), there’s a little pencil up in the top right. If you click it, you can edit the file. When you’re done, hit Propose file change and GitHub will fork the repo for you and create a pull request.

Isn’t that wild? It creates the fork for you!

No need to fork and pull and change locally and push and create a PR.
