What is DotGit?
DotGit is a specialized tool designed for web security. This Chrome extension continuously monitors for exposed .git, .svn, .hg folders, or .env files in the websites you visit, alerting you if they are found. It can also identify if the website is open source or possesses a security.txt. DotGit also features an easy .git/config access, colour, notification, and download options, and provides a list of exposed sites found. For comprehensive web protection, configure the more advanced settings.
