New area for collaborative work

Postby joepal » Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:37 am

As the forums is a very cumbersome way to share files, I've now opened up a github repo for sharing WIP assets:

https://github.com/makehumancommunity/c ... assets-wip

Upside is you get everything managed this way. Downside is you'll have to learn the basics of git. There are plenty of tutorials on the net. TL;DR, simply download https://tortoisegit.org/download/ if you're on windows.

The repo is a bit experimental. In particular, there is a size limit for github repos, so it's possible it might have to be split in sub-sections if lots of material end up there.

Many thanks! My extra-fine eyelashes and eyebrows continually crash MakeClothes, and I know that other users need them, as they remove the need for fancy rendering tricks. :)

Nice idea. Can someone maybe point me to some "git for total dummies" tutorial?

Under which OS as the tools available differ greatly Linux has the most as git was first developed by Linus Torvalds for use in development of the Linux kernel itself(commercial program they where using started demanding payment) git usage is fairly simple most of the kernel hackers like the command line :( so GUI's for git are primitive at best.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Of course I mean GNU/Linux, as far as I'm concerned that's the only OS that's usable on PCs. I'm not scared of command line, it's reading long mans that scares me :)

The man page for git is not that long and not too convoluted the main commands are push and pull and some maintenance functions so if the man page confuses you have look at https://help.github.com/ good fac and setup info as well.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Here is a git intro, which assumes you have command linehttp://git-scm.com/book/en/v1/Getting-Started git. I do not remember if Linux comes with git, but if not and you type git on a console, it should ask to install it.

There are also many front ends. I use Eclipse, but I am coding python / Typescript / Java.

If you plan to contribute via Pull request, PR, then you will need to fork the repository to your own account. See this. https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo/
