Connect a GitHub repository as a source for articles

It would be amazing if we could connect a GitHub repository with our articles in markdown files.

This allows us to:

  • Write our articles in our favorite editor, e.g. Visual Studio Code
  • Update our articles when we push to master branch (or a branch of choice)
  • Enables us to create branches, do PRs and reviews.

    For example, I would love to use Hashnode to do release notes and articles on behalf of my Open-Source projects and my company. Since we are multiple people working on these, it would be nice for us to do PRs and code reviews, like we do anything else.

Additionally, this also enables us to do "batch" updates of articles.
Sometimes we need to do a simple "search and replace" throughout multiple articles, and this feature would allow us to update a series of articles by virtue of updating the repository.
