i know enough to browse other peoples code and download firmware updates etc…but i’ve never shared anything myself because i still don’t understand github as well as i’d like to
sorry if this feels like clutter, using github might seem easy to some of you, but for many of us the initial challenge is enough of a barrier to stop us from contributing meaningfully to development of our favorite instruments
Also, just a note that I believe there might be a bit of discrepancy to the state of the dust repo on norns and the way the norns image was added to the devices. I’m trying to tease that out a bit right now in this issue. Things may be a little “abnormal” if you try to get in there and do git stuff to update your device until we square that away.
If anyone needs help publishing stuff using git to any of the monome repos, my PMs are open, as well as happy to answer questions here.
you can also download the source right from the GH UI
Definitely the easier way to do this! downloading and copying/pasting the scripts and pieces into the UI should work fine (provided the scripts work and you get all the pieces and data files and stuff the script needs to run)
I strongly recommend downloading the Github Desktop client. It almost makes git as easy as using any other Mac app. Then, instead of downloading zips or individual files, just clone the whole repo. Then you’ll be well positioned to contribute code from your local copy when you are ready.
Nah! It works! It’s a good idea to be well comfortable with it before getting into the command line. It helps because by then, you will have many of the basic concepts down, and you’ll just be learning syntax (not the whole “what the heck is git” thing).
