Where can I get it?

Download the official installer for your operating system:

There are several community-supported package managers that can be used to install Github Desktop.

  • Windows users can install using Chocolatey package manager: c:\> choco install github-desktop
  • macOS users can install using Homebrew package manager: $ brew cask install github
  • Arch Linux users can install the latest version from the AUR.

You can install this alongside your existing GitHub Desktop for Mac or GitHub Desktop for Windows application.

NOTE: there is no current migration path to import your existing repositories into the new application - you can drag-and-drop your repositories from disk onto the application to get started.

I have a problem with GitHub Desktop

Note: The GitHub Desktop Code of Conduct applies in all interactions relating to the GitHub Desktop project.

First, please search the open issues and closed issues to see if your issue hasn't already been reported (it may also be fixed).

There is also a list of known issues that are being tracked against Desktop, and some of these issues have workarounds.

If you can't find an issue that matches what you're seeing, open a new issue, choose the right template and provide us with enough information to investigate further.

The issue I reported isn't fixed yet. What can I do?

If nobody has responded to your issue in a few days, you're welcome to respond to it with a friendly ping in the issue. Please do not respond more than a second time if nobody has responded. The GitHub Desktop maintainers are constrained in time and resources, and diagnosing individual configurations can be difficult and time consuming. While we'll try to at least get you pointed in the right direction, we can't guarantee we'll be able to dig too deeply into any one person's issue.

How can I contribute to GitHub Desktop?

The document will help you get setup and familiar with the source. The documentation folder also contains more resources relevant to the project.
