GitHub and GitHub Desktop Getting Ready for Code Review

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  Trying to get GitHub working and couldn't find a forum.  

 

I have uploaded all my code and set up the my GitHub Desktop.  The Desktop has all my code in a nice format that would be fine for a code project review.  However, although the download zipped code seems to work from the server and the GitHub Desktop setup has allowed me to use my repository, I cannot get any sample code to download into the GitHub Desktop when the button or display icon  is pressed on the GitHub server.  

Upon press of the button it asks if I would like to:

Open URL:x-githun-client    or    not.

 

I try both and they do not download into my GitHub Desktop.  I left an email for them and they have not responded.

 

The code seems viewable on the site and it can zip download, but I was hoping that gamedev.net users could use their GitHub Desktop because it is a little nicer to look at/ understand.

 

What I have now is a GitHub address with my files on it.  Is it me, and will you all use GitHub Desktop just fine on the site?  

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

And there doesn't seem to be any need for a password for you all? 

 

I know this isn't a forum for GitHub, but as it was mentioned on gamedev.net so I thought perhaps I could get the answers here.

 

Thank you and sincerely,

 

Josheir

What is your username on GitHub?

This isn't your problem. If somebody wants to clone your repository using GitHub's desktop app, they'll know how to do it. As long as your repository is on GitHub itself and is public, they can clone it or view it however they like. Personally, I think the app you're talking about is horrid.

Unless you have made the repository private, anybody can view it using a web browser via GitHub's website.

You shouldn't need to worry about which client people will use for interacting with git. Github Desktop is just one GUI for interacting with git and github. I personally do not use it for example.

As long as your code is uploaded to github.com then people are will be able to clone it with whatever tool they like using!
