Beginner's Setup Guide for Git & Github on Mac OS X. There is an updated version of this post for OS X 10.9. While the steps below should still work, I recommend checking out the new guide if you are running 10.9! There are already plenty of guides that explain the particular steps of getting Git and Github going on your mac in detail. Head over to and download the Native Git Desktop for your operating system. Once the download has completed, proceed with the installation. When asked to sign in, you can either create a free account or skip this step. Once you’ve completed the installation, you will see the GitHub Desktop window.

Download Github Desktop For Mac

If you are a network administrator, you can deploy GitHub Desktop to computers running Windows on an Active Directory-managed network by using the Windows Installer package file (.msi) with Group Policy or another remote installation system.

The Windows Installer package extracts the standalone installer (.exe) and configures Windows to install GitHub Desktop the next time a user signs in to their workstation. Users must have permissions to install GitHub Desktop in their user directory.

If a user runs the Windows Installer package for GitHub Desktop directly, to complete the installation, the user must sign out of their workstation and then sign back in.
