GitHub introduces a brand-new desktop app. Along with Electron, the new GitHub desktop app is also written in Microsoft TypeScript, and it’s open-source.

In terms of features, there isn’t a staggering difference between the old GitHub Desktop and the new one. There is, however, a huge upgrade when it comes to the user-interface of the app as GitHub has completely revamped the interface to provide a unified user experience on both Windows and the Mac.
