Github


#1

I had a spare evening yesterday so I finally got around to fixing an issue with the Mote examples that I found a while ago. Now I’ve only used Github a little, but I just about figured out the process (forking, committing, pushing, pull requesting). I’d be happy to try and put together a little (Pimoroni repo specific) guide of the process if that’s something that doesn’t exist and people would be interested in?


#2

I think that this would be useful. When I first learned how to do pull requests I found that there was not much easy to understand stuff out there. Even if you just post it under learning resources here I still think that it would be useful for beginners.


#3

Cool, it’ll probably be more focused around assisting with the Pimoroni libraries, but sounds like that might be helpful to some who want to help but aren’t quite sure where to start.


#4

+1 on this. With both the Pimoroni libs (for features/examples) and Pinout.xyz I’ve wanted a good guide I could point people at for making contributions.

It would ideally cover the actual doing plus the more whimsical “how to be a good contributor” side of things.


#5

For the git system in general I have Nina Jaeschkes git cheat sheet hanging right above my screen. It is a simple and very useful help for using git from the command line.


#6

Handy! I had to do a bit of revision from the Atlassian git tutorials and a bit of guesswork :)


#7

Here’s the WIP page, I’ll try and get it finished off at some point. https://github.com/Tom-Archer/github-contrib
