Github Desktop Chromebook

GitHub Desktop is a desktop client for Git and GitHub, and it’s available for Windows and macOS. Unfortunately, it is not officially available for Chrome OS, which is the operating system used on Chromebooks.

However, you can still use Git and GitHub on a Chromebook by using the command-line interface. You can use the built-in terminal app on a Chromebook, or install an app such as Termux that provides a Linux-like environment on your Chromebook.

Once you have a terminal set up, you can install Git by running the following command:

sudo apt-get install git


You can then use Git commands like git clone, git push, git pull, etc. to clone, commit, and synchronize your code with your GitHub repositories.

It’s worth noting that while the command-line interface is less user-friendly than a graphical user interface, it provides the same functionality and power. You can also use any text editor that you prefer, such as nano, vim or emacs, to write and edit your code.

Additionally, you can use other Git client on Linux like GitKraken, SourceTree, etc. they have versions for Linux and they’re compatible with Chrome OS. They are available as browser extension or as Android apps, which can run on Chromebooks.
