Hopefully, no one needs to sell you on GitHub – the world’s largest open source community. GitHub is home for most developers – a fast flexible social environment to build personal projects, support enterprises and collaborate on open source technologies.
The underpinnings of GitHub is Git – a free, open source, cross-platform and highly productive distributed version control system. GitHub conveniently wraps all of Git’s features into polished UI tools for your chosen development platform, namely:
- GitHub for Windows: https://windows.github.com
- GitHub for Mac: https://mac.github.com
But you are a geek. And what appeals more to your inner nerdiness than pure text on a bland terminal window. Nothing like passer-by’s not having a clue as to what you are up to!
