GitHub the web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git revision control system has this week started rolling out a new redesign.
The new GitHub redesign has been created to provide users of the GitHub service with extra speed while viewing content together with interactive elements to help workflow.
The new GitHub redesign has been under construction for the last year and has been created to provide daily users of the service with a more optimised workflow say its creators. The new GitHub user interface has now been more streamlined and is now less cluttered than it previously was.
Allowing users to easily see email notifications and have easier access to the code, with particular attention being paid to the way the code can now be read and scanned by users, with icons replacing text for developers, offering new thumbnail views of their repositories.
GitHub said that the new redesign has improved the connection speed on most projects from one second down to 300 ms, by focusing on pjax and improving its caching system to reduce load times.
“It’s a big change, and may take a few days to feel right. As always, this is just the beginning. This redesign paves the way for an even faster, more focused GitHub. And we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”Filed Under: Technology News
