Github Desktop

by BBmine » Post

Github desktop is only for Windows. They have some slightly different ones for Linux, but I couldn't figure out how to use them. Can someone tell me how.

Thanks.

In my opinion, there is no good, free and open source, complete Git GUI that's cross-platform (and thus works on GNU/Linux).

I would advise you to learn the Git command-line, basic operations are not that hard. Note that some editors like Atom have plugins to assist in Git usage (git-plus in Atom's case).

Mostly reason Windows got a desktop is due, It command-line can't be setup same like Linux.
But once you get hang of it (Linux) you, will go far :) I use through my own little IDE that can pull git requests. Idk if can push them through.

Indeed, Git for Windows works quite well. In fact, Microsoft has even contributed to it.
