We use Git, so you will need to clone the project from GitHub using that. This will look something like (from the command line):
Code: Select all
git clone https://github.com/BroadleafCommerce/DemoSite.git
This checks out the DemoSite so now you have it under source control. There is a plethora of information about Git on the internet, so if you are unfamiliar with Git and how it works I recommend doing some Googling.
Also, the egit plugin might also be helpful in Eclipse. This is a team connector for Eclipse and works much like the subclipse plugin (which is the subversion plugin for Eclipse). More information on this plugin can be found at http://www.eclipse.org/egit
Finally, if you are on OSX specifically, we all here at Broadleaf use SourceTree (http://www.sourcetreeapp.com/
) for a lot of our day-to-day repository management. I cannot recommend this software enough. I have not personally used GitHub's application (http://mac.github.com/
and the Windows version at http://windows.github.com/
) but I hear that has worked well for people also.
