What’s the difference between Git and GitHub?

  • Share this:

Git and GitHub are often used interchangeably, but they are actually two different things.

Git is a version control system that allows developers to track changes to their codebase and collaborate with others on software projects. It allows developers to create multiple versions or "branches" of their code, merge changes from different branches, and revert to previous versions if necessary.

GitHub, on the other hand, is a web-based platform that allows developers to host and collaborate on Git repositories. It provides tools for managing and sharing code, tracking issues and bugs, and reviewing and approving code changes. GitHub also offers a range of features for community collaboration, such as forums, wikis, and project management tools.

In summary, Git is a version control system used to manage code repositories, while GitHub is a web-based platform for hosting and collaborating on Git repositories.
