BitBucket with GitHub for Windows

I’ve been using with SourceTree on the Mac for a while now, but since I need to be on Windows 8 for this current project I was looking for a convenient way to use BitBucket from Windows (until SourceTree for Windows is out of beta Edit: it is now!). And here it is:

Get GitHub for Windows and follow these steps here.

Or follow these short instructions:

  • Get your repository’s https address from (for example:
  • Open Git Shell (installs with GitHub for Windows, just search for it)
  • Clone your repositiory like this:
    git clone (with your own address obviously), enter your BitBucket password and wait for it to finish. This is what it should look like:

    Clone in GitShell

  • Locate the folder in File Exlorer and drag and drop it onto GitHub for Windows

    drag folter onto github

  • Done!
