GITHUB instructions, tutorial NEED HELP

OK so simply put, how do I get code from GITHUB and how do I find specific code on GITHUB? Let's say I want an object for a sensor. How do I find that object in GITHUB so that I can use it in my project code? Is there a simple tutorial specifically for finding/downloading code from GITHUB?
I loved the OBEX!

Thanks
Aaron

  • Okay, given the state of the new GitHub OBEX, all of the code in the OBEX has to be pulled at once. You can do this by going to https://github.com/parallaxinc/propeller and clicking the big green button that says 'Code'. You will get a very large zip folder. once you have extracted the contents of this folder, you will need to navigate to the libraries folder, where you can pick community or official. There will be code in both. Once you have opened one of those, you can pick p1 or p2, then open the folder titled 'All' If you use any of the other categories, you will find references to the actual code, which is contained in the 'All' folder. Once you're in the 'All' folder, pick which project you want and copy that folder to wherever you want it. It will contain all the code for that project.

    As an alternative, One of the forum members, I believe @DavidZemon, made an interface for the Parallax GitHub OBEX on his website. I can't remember his URL, but he does for sure!

    Nah, I can't remember anything. That's why I put it in my signature :lol:

    Edit
    It looks like something is broken when trying to download whole folders from the "symlinks" directories. I'll see about getting this fixed "soon". Simple work around is to either download individual files or to find the folder under "All" instead of under the individual categories.
  • In similar repositories, I go to the individual file, have it displayed in raw mode, then right-click and save.
  • Thank you! That worked.
