How developers work
Find tools that support every part of your workflow. Then work how you work best—we'll follow your lead.
Automate from code to cloud
Cycle your production code faster and simplify your workflow with GitHub Packages and built-in CI/CD using GitHub Actions.
Automate your workflows
Build, test, deploy, and run CI/CD the way you want in the same place you manage code. Trigger Actions from any GitHub event to any available API. Build your own Actions in the language of your choice, or choose from thousands of workflows and Actions created by the community.
Packages at home with their code
Use Actions to automatically publish new package versions to GitHub Packages. Install packages and images hosted on GitHub Packages or your preferred registry of record in your CI/CD workflows. It’s always free for open source—and data transfer within Actions is unlimited for everyone.
Securing software, together
We all play a role in securing the world’s code—developers, maintainers, researchers, and security teams. On GitHub, development teams everywhere can work together to secure the world’s software supply chain, from fork to finish.

Get alerts about vulnerabilities in your code
We continuously scan security advisories for popular languages, and send security alerts to maintainers of affected repositories with details so they can remediate risks.
Automatically update vulnerabilities
We monitor your project dependencies and automatically open pull requests to update dependencies to the minimum version that resolves known vulnerabilities.
Stay on top of CVEs
Stay up to date with the latest Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), and learn how they affect you with the GitHub Advisory Database.
Find vulnerabilities that other tools miss
CodeQL is the industry’s leading semantic code analysis engine. Our revolutionary approach treats code as data to identify security vulnerabilities faster.
Never make the same mistake twice. Proactive vulnerability scanning prevents vulnerabilities from ever reaching production.
Keep your tokens safe
Accidentally committed a token to a public repository? We’ve got you. With support for 20 service providers we’ll take steps to keep you safe.
Protect your users
We provide the infrastructure security researchers and open source maintainers need to responsibly disclose security vulnerabilities.
Seamless code review
Code review is the surest path to better code, and it’s fundamental to how GitHub works. Built-in review tools make code review an essential part of your team’s process.
Better code starts with a Pull Request, a living conversation about changes where you can talk through ideas, assign tasks, discuss details, and conduct reviews.
See the difference
Reviews happen faster when you know exactly what’s changed. Diffs compare versions of your source code side by side, highlighting the parts that are new, edited, or deleted.
Give clear feedback
Your teammates shouldn’t have to think too hard about what a thumbs up emoji means. Specify whether your comments are required changes or just a few suggestions.
If you’re on the other side of a review, you can request reviews from your peers to get the exact feedback you need.
Comment in context
Discussions happen in comment threads, right within your code. Bundle comments into one review, or reply to someone else’s inline to start a conversation.
Only merge the highest quality code. You can configure repositories to require status checks, reducing both human error and administrative overhead.

Made for you, by us
We’re building developer tools, too. We hope they help you work on projects of any size and share ideas with your friends and coworkers. Try them out or help us build them.
Discover new tools
A well-timed app can complement your workflow and help your team accomplish more. Hundreds of tools work with GitHub to help your team collaborate, automate work, and more.
Sometimes only a custom tool will do. Create your own tools with greater access to data than ever before using the GitHub GraphQL API—the same API we use to build GitHub.
Take GitHub even further
Find tools for every step of the development process and start using them in minutes. Browse and buy apps from GitHub Marketplace with your GitHub account—no need for multiple accounts or payment methods.
All your code and documentation in one place
There are hundreds of millions of private, public, and open source repositories hosted on GitHub. Every repository is equipped with tools to help you host, version, and release code and documentation.
Code where you collaborate
Repositories keep code in one place and help your teams collaborate with the tools they love, even if you work with large files using Git LFS. With unlimited private repositories for individuals and teams, you can create or import as many projects as you’d like.
Compare features of our different GitHub subscriptions.
Documentation alongside your code
Host your documentation directly from your repositories with GitHub Pages. Use Jekyll as a static site generator and publish your Pages from the /docs folder on your master branch.
Learn more about publishing documentation on GitHub Pages or wikis.
Manage your ideas
Coordinate early, stay aligned, and get more done with GitHub’s project management tools.

See your project’s big picture
See everything happening in your project and choose where to focus your team’s efforts with Projects, task boards that live right where they belong: close to your code.
Reference every Issue and Pull Request in a card, a drag-and-droppable snapshot of the work your teams do in your repository.
Capture early ideas that come up as part of your standup or team sync, without polluting your issues.
Track and assign tasks
Issues help you identify, assign, and keep track of tasks within your team. You can open an Issue to track a bug, discuss an idea with an @mention, or start distributing work.
Add a milestone to your Issue or Pull Request to organize and track progress on groups of issues or pull requests in a repository.
Assign an Issue or a Pull Request to one or more teammates to make it clear who is doing what work.
The human side of software
Building software is as much about managing teams and communities as it is about code. Whether you’re on a team of two or two thousand, we’ve got the support your people need.
Manage and grow teams
Help people get organized with GitHub teams, level up access with administrative roles, and fine tune your permissions with nested teams.
Keep conversations on topic
Moderation tools, like issue and pull request locking, help your team stay focused on code. And if you maintain an open source project, user blocking reduces noises and ensures conversations are productive.
Set community guidelines
Set roles and expectations without starting from scratch. Customize common codes of conduct to create the perfect one for your project. Then choose a pre-written license right from your repository.
Open source guides
Our guides cover the fundamentals of open source maintenance—from starting a new project to introducing innersource to getting paid for all your hard work. Learn more about open source at GitHub or get ready to launch a project of your own.
