GitKraken Pro Suite for Students

Free through the GitHub Student Developer Pack

Getting started using Git for version control can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. The GitKraken Git GUI, GitKraken Boards and GitKraken Timelines actually help make the process easier, which is why we’ve partnered with GitHub to provide the GitKraken Pro Suite for free for students through the GitHub Student Developer Pack! We’ve also created lots of resources to help students learn Git.

"Being a student, GitKraken helps get my work done in a much simpler, faster way. I can work on my projects using the built-in code editor, and I can push the code directly to my repo from the GitKraken GUI."
- Manbir Singh Marwah
Student at Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Engineering in New Delhi, India

Free Tools

When your students are using one ecosystem for managing their Git repos with the GitKraken Git GUI and tracking issues with GitKraken Boards, it makes it easier for them to learn and collaborate, and easier for you to review. Plus, GitKraken Timelines is a great tool for communicating project milestones and deadlines to your class.

GitKraken Git GUI

The GitKraken Git GUI is a cross-platform client for Windows, Mac, & Linux, simplifying complicated Git commands into drag-and-drop actions. GitKraken offers seamless integrations with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise. Resolve merge conflicts without leaving the app, and use GitHub Actions to create workflow automations.

GitKraken Boards

GitKraken Boards provides a more productive way to track issues from inside the GitKraken Git GUI, a browser, mobile app, or inside of Atom or VS Code! GitKraken Boards syncs in real-time with GitHub Issues and GitHub Milestones. Link cards to GitHub pull requests, check PR/build statuses and auto-update cards from GitKraken Boards. Use GitHub Actions to automate your workflow.

GitKraken Timelines

GitKraken Timelines helps you stay organized by visualizing your upcoming project milestones and deadlines in a linear timeline. Add items that need to be completed for each milestone. Create timelines for each class or project and then view them layered on top of each other. Add images to milestones and as background images.
