Python Setting Up GitHub Desktop


What if i am using google chrome, which Github platform should i download?

1 Answer

GitHub Desktop is available on Mac and Windows, with other GUI options for Linux if that's your jam. https://desktop.github.com/

You can also just use the website in conjunction with the terminal/bash application on your PC, it's got a bit more of a learning curve than a GUI, but I actually find it easier now. Personal preference, though, obviously.

If you meant you are using a Chromebook, I'm not very familiar with that platform, but most of what I could find seems to require installing Linux/Ubuntu and then installing git from there. http://techintranslation.com/git-python-and-node-on-a-toshiba-chromebook-without-crouton-or-linux/

Hope that helps a bit.
