Rox, the software BeWelcome is running on, is available from our official GitHub repository. You are warmly invited to download, try out and modify the code. We would be very happy if you help us to improve Rox by committing your patches and joining the team. There are plenty of things to do! :)
There are two ways of downloading the repository, for both you need to have an account at https://github.com :
- Cloning with HTTPS (recommended)
git clone https://github.com/BeWelcome/rox.git
- Cloning with SSH:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:BeWelcome/rox.git
The commands above will create a directory called rox with a copy of our code repository including all branches in it. By default the repository is set to the master branch, which represents what is currently running on www.bewelcome.org. If you want to see the latest development code, switch to the develop branch:
git checkout develop
If you want to change back to the master branch, simply type:
git checkout master
If you are new to git branches, http://book.git-scm.com/3_basic_branching_and_merging.html is a good starting point for further reading.
