GitHub Vs Git

GitHub and Git are related but distinct tools in the world of software development.

Git is a distributed version control system (DVCS) that allows multiple developers to collaborate on projects simultaneously. It tracks changes to files, facilitates collaboration, and enables developers to work on their local machines without needing a constant internet connection. Git manages these changes in a repository, allowing developers to keep track of different versions of their code and collaborate effectively.

GitHub, on the other hand, is a web-based platform built around Git. It provides hosting for Git repositories and adds a range of features on top of Git’s basic functionality. GitHub offers tools for project management, issue tracking, code review, and collaboration. Developers can use GitHub to host their Git repositories remotely, making it easier to share code with others, collaborate on projects, and contribute to open-source software.

summary, Git is the version control system itself, while GitHub is a hosting platform for Git repositories with additional features for collaboration and project management. While Git can be used without GitHub, GitHub leverages Git’s capabilities and provides additional tools to enhance the development workflow.

We can say that GitHub is a serviceAnd Git is a Software

It was launched in 2008Git launched in 2005
It is used on webGit is used and installed in local machine
It is used to focus on centralized source code hostingOn other hand git is used to focus on version control , code sharing and branches
It has built in user management feature in it.It has no user management feature
