GitHub frees up access to unlimited private repositories

08 Jan 2019

Developers who use GitHub as a repository space can save themselves a little more money, after GitHub announced today that all developers can now take advantage of free unlimited private repositories.

Previously developers had to pay US$7 per month to access the repositories, but now developers can use GitHub for private projects with up to three collaborators for free.

In a blog, GitHub explains that many developers wish to use private repositories for a number of reasons, including job applications, side project, or simply testing code out before making it public.

“Starting today, those scenarios, and many more, are possible on GitHub at no cost,” GitHub says.

Public repositories are still free of charge and include unlimited collaborators.

GitHub Pro (formerly known as GitHub Developer) and GitHub Team are available for those who require professional coding and collaboration features.

“And of course, open source contributors will still have everything they need to collaborate on public repositories, including our free version of GitHub Team.”

GitHub has also consolidated its enterprise offerings into a new product called GitHub Enterprise.

The product includes Enterprise Cloud (formerly known as GitHub Business Cloud) and Enterprise Server (formerly known as GitHub Enterprise) for organisations that want the flexibility to use GitHub in a cloud or self-hosted architecture.

“With GitHub Connect, these products can be securely linked, providing a hybrid option so developers can work seamlessly across both environments.”

“Whether you’re a student about to write your first line of code, an enterprise leader with teams around the world, or an open source maintainer, we want GitHub to be the best place for you to code, collaborate, and connect with the global community of developers,” the company says.

“Today’s changes are a big investment in the future of GitHub, and we’re excited to see to what you build in 2019.”
