GitHub Desktop overview

GitHub Desktop allows developers to synchronize branches, clone repositories, and more. Pull requests, merge button, fork queue, issues, pages, wiki: all awesome features that make sharing easier. But those things are only great after you've pushed your code to GitHub.

GitHub Desktop Features
  • Synchronize branches - The sync button pushes your changes to GitHub and pulls down other's changes in one operation. It notifies you know when you have changes you haven't pushed or there are new changes on GitHub you haven't pulled down.
  • Clone repositories in one click - When you add repositories to GitHub Desktop for Mac, we automatically match them up with any organizations you belong to. Want to pull down a repository from GitHub.com? Check out the button on the website.
  • Powerfully simple branching - Branching is one of Git's best features. We've made it easy to try out remote branches, create new local branches and publish branches to share with others.

GitHub Desktop has no graphical view of commits, which makes it a non-starter for me. I use SourceTree to view history and compare commits to each other or to the current state of the working copy, and the graphical view is indispensable for this. (I use the command line for most other things).

Really excellent Git tool. It is the ideal complement to the command line. Polished and intuitive UI that makes everything even branching/merging very simple. Tiny quirks here and there, but the development team is actively working on it and very responsive and friendly. You can tell there was definitely some good thought put into this app from the beginning.

Works very well for me for all my basic and common Git tasks (committing, pushing & pulling, branching). The UI is very polished, although I don't like the iOS style on OS X in general - but that's just my preference, I guess. No stability issues so far. BTW, this application works fine with non-GitHub repositories.

Had a look at this for use with local repositories. It has what appears to be a slick interface, and nice features, like scanning for local repositories. However, it is very buggy in this and will not work well with a local repository. Don't know about use with Github site, but is not a replacement for Tower when working with local repositories.

Very impressed with this initial release, have to be honest and say I'm really glad I did not buy Tower now.

Ouch for Tower and Gitbox (and the just-underway Kickstarter Git client). Hard to compete with slick and free, they're really going to have to come up with some unique angle on git repo management. Good luck!
