The compatibility of Mercurial and GitHub?

Now choose a version control system, for the eyes like Mercurial. But after reading a number of resources and did not understand, "friends" if he github.com?


I understand that compatibility exists, but it is convenient to use client for that not intended? Or if the focus on github, only git and Mercurial if, the direct route on bitbucket. I understand that there are subtleties.

To be clear, I'm sure many dog ate...

Solution
With your repositories on github work through hg (with hg-git). With strangers — via git.

What can I say — to use hg as a client to github, and the command-line interface from hg better than git, but a lot of subtleties: there are things in hg that have no analogues in the Gita (named branches) and so the full conversion hg <-> git does not work; the hg-git there are some glitches, and it does not supports all features. This approach is definitely not for someone who just took the version control system; to use it, you need is quite well as hg and git to know, and it works well only for simple repositories (I have several commits in a month, mostly linear repository).

If you want to place the repository on github, git to learn the meaning is, in any case.
Here is such a picture as you described I had at the time the job issue.
As I feared, for github you need git. Just the most interesting thing always is on github, many developers out there familiar have accounts. It is convenient to register there.
You are right, need to learn git. - Ambrose.Wintheiser99 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:52
Long used hg-git for all my repositories on github and fork-s/pull-request-s in the wrong repository. With the work using only the most branches via hg-shnye bookmark-I. While there were no problems. For me personally, hg, git is much nicer. As I read when I studied this issue before using hg-git - problems can arise only if other developers will use the hardcore features of git to the hard versions of the story (which, in my wasglad, should not be done in principle). - ocie_Rath commented on October 8th 19 at 00:55

Githab — only git. In addition bitbucket under the sourceforge mercurial is still there, code.google.com and mironovskii codeplex.
Exhaustively. Thank you - Ambrose.Wintheiser99 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:54

Friends with Bitbucket Git.
It is clear, I wonder the opposite: friendly if github with Mercurial. - Ambrose.Wintheiser99 commented on October 8th 19 at 00:56
