GitHub adds new drag-and-drop feature to its profile. You can now upload files to your repository by dragging and dropping them into the browser. This option is more easier for those who are performing just basic operations and comes in as handy, particularly for those users who interact with GitHub via browser rather through standalone desktop app.
After uploading the file, you can add it to an existing branch, or you can create a new one with a pull request. GitHub has made it this way so as to skip the command line, which will be useful for a lot of consumers. And if you don’t want to use drag-and-drop, doesn’t matter, you can utilize ‘upload file’ button in the toolbar at the top of the command tree.
Both options will lead you to the same ‘add file’ screen. Your file will be opened automatically if you drag it to the browser, whereas clicking the button opens up the new page.
GitHub Project Manager Ben Bleikamp makes his opine clear. “Previously, you had to go through the command line to add a file to a repository – we know that can be pretty intimidating for people who are just learning to code, or aren’t professional developers. We’ve removed that step by letting you upload files directly in browser, so you don’t need to know Git or have a desktop client to share important information.”

He says “We want to make it easier for everyone to participate in the process of building software, even if you’re not the one writing the actual code.”
GitHub’s ‘upload file’ feature will be out of the box in the next few days. Hopefully, just wait to see it in your browser window next time.
