It looks hard, but it's really easy to start to use GitHub as theme editor. Here's my step-by-step guide.

This is brief translation of my original post

Connect and GitHub

The first and obvious, you must register on GitHub.

Then you should fork any of's theme on Github. I have problems with clean fork, but everything works fine with clone.

To make a fork of them follow this link. You can see three default themes (the first one is for developers):

Choose any theme and click Fork:

After this you'll get new repository. You can get access to all your repositories on your Profile page, Repositories tab:


You need to go to Source Code page inside's settings. Connect with GitHub and choose repository from previous step:

Click Save and you can enjoy new theme.

Make your own theme

Everything is easier if you want to use your own theme. You need to create new repository. You can do it on GitHub Profile page, just click New button:

Choose name, description (if you want), choose "Public, activate Initialize this repository with a README" checkbox (if you want). This file will be useful for collaboration work. Then click Create Repository.

There are many-many letters on next step... Just click Import Code and import any existing repository.

Next page is Import page. What repository should you choose? If you need empty .html file where you can create new theme from scratch, then use this link
and click Begin Import

Then Continue to Repository:

Then you should see this page:

All code of your future theme should be in theme.html. You should see this file after fork or clone's themes. Or you can create one.

Create your code

To edit code of your theme just click theme.html on your repository page and you'll see an editor:

In my case this file is empey 'cause I didn't create any code. To edit your code click on pencil icon and start coding:

Then click Commit Changes and check them on your blog. Don't forget to connect with your repository.

You can ask any questions about in comments. I'm always glad to help you
