I would like feedback on 
- whether the value proposition of the product is clear
- whether the design inspires trust that the product will be well executed

Thank you!

Making and breaking things

Hi David, nice idea.

The one question I'd ask though is why give you access to a GitHub repository? My first thought on the proposition is, why?

It would be far better if you make it work locally. Especially with a lot of developers working remotely now, it would be good to have a client attach realtime to give feedback and copy changes. I can't see the benefit of giving a platform GitHub access beyond that, however much privacy is a said focus. Maybe a video would help sell it better.

Also does it work with modern front-end frameworks? Such as Vue and with static framework like Gridsome or Gatsby.

Seeing a lot of ideas like this at the moment, and you're definitely coming at it at a different angle, which is good. Not sure it would be something I'd, unless you can figure out the local functionality and a realtime element.

Simple design always inspires trust for me. Nicely done.

Hope that helps.

Hey Jack!
Thanks for taking the time to check out codebird and give me feedback!

I can definitely see the value add of working locally and it might be something to add in the future. While developers are a target customer I think a bigger painpoint can be solved is to enable non technical team members being able to make product changes. I need to connect to github to allow the previous to happen without a local dev environment.

Yes it should work with any website stored in github without any codebase changes
