GitHub for Mac Released

GitHub has released GitHub for Mac, a desktop application that integrates with git and GitHub. Git is a very powerful version control system, but it can be very difficult to learn how to use on the command line. GitHub for Mac looks like a great tool that will allow you to clone, commit, and review git repositories, and interface with GitHub very smoothly.

GitHub for Mac

If you have GitHub for Mac installed, you can click on the new “Clone in Mac” button on the GitHub page, and GitHub for Mac will quickly and easily clone the code to your computer.

I’ve had the chance to play around with it, and it seems like it does what GitHub does best, make it easier to use Git. I only noticed a few little hiccups, for instance it wouldn’t show me the diffs in the history for several files, claiming they are binary file when they are not. I am confident these sorts of things will be ironed out, and GitHub for Mac will become the easiest way to work with Git on the Mac.
