Not to be pedantic but the web interface *is* GitHub. GitHub is a web interface for remote git repositories. There are a number of such interfaces (BitBucket, GitLab, GitWeb etc). So to clarify: using GitHub you can avoid having to use git locally. You are actually still using git though remotely and via a web interface. Git really is a helpful thing in your toolbox and I encourage everyone to spend a little bit of time learning it regardless of whether you would like to contribute to LiveCode or not. One thing I use it for is web deployment. I can make a change locally, commit and push to the server and that will trigger a shell script to run on the server (called a post-update hook) which deploys my web app.

Cheers
