Originally founded by Chris Wanstrath, PJ Hyett and Tom Preston-Werner as a project to simplify sharing code, GitHub has grown into an application used by over a million people to store over two million code repositories, making GitHub the largest code host in the world.
Code is about the people writing it. We focus on lowering the barriers of collaboration by building powerful features into our products that make it easier to contribute. The tools we create help individuals and companies, public and private, to write better code, faster. Ship it!
GitHub is headquartered in San Francisco with team members working remotely from all around the world. We operate in a culture based on personal responsibility, rather than management, by hiring great people and treating them accordingly. You can meet the team below or around your town at a meetup!
Not your standard git hosting
GitHub keeps your public and private code available, secure, and backed up. Stop hoarding code on your hard drive; it takes less than a minute to push code up to GitHub and start collaborating with others.
It doesn't matter if you prefer to use the command line git client, a tool like hg-git, or a graphical application like SmartGit— we're dedicated to helping you collaborate easily and securely.
Host private code for as little as $7 per month (of course public code is free). Save yourself time and money — host your code with GitHub.
Browse source code online
We're focused on making your source code accessible and transparent. Anything you push to a repository is instantly viewable online so you can share it with people even if they don't use Git. The main page of every project is a list of the files in the project and information about the last time it was committed to so you can instantly see what is most important about your project: the code.
Every file in your repo has a simple history view. You can see each commit that changed the file and view the file at any point in time.
Blame / Annotate
Need to figure out who added that piece of code? Open up the blame view to see which commits and authors last affected each line.
Need to make a quick change to a file? Correct a spelling error on your mobile phone? We offer a simple editor to every file in your repository.
