Creating a CodeSandbox from a GitHub Repository

I recently had the need to post a live demo of a simple Create React App project that was posted on another user’s GitHub repository. I typically turn to CodeSandbox for examples like this, but I didn’t want to recreate the project from scratch since it already was good to go. I found that CodeSandbox has a ton of options to import a Sandbox.

The easiest one in this case by far was using From their readme:

Go to a repo in GitHub
Replace with
There’s no step three

So all I had to do was take this GitHub URL:

and change it to:

Which magically gave me this sandbox:

Super simple and super handy.
