The source code dojo for the ninjawars.net web game.
You can make web commits on github.com, just search github for "ninjawars". To contribute on github: For simple contribution/collaboration: -Find the file or code that you want to suggest a fix for, and make a comment with the fixed code, or just the general process to acheive the fix.
For more in-depth contribution/collaboration:
-Make an account on github & log in. -Click the button on the ninjawars repository to create your own "fork" of the ninjawars code. -Find any files you want to change and click the "edit" link to edit your version directly. -When you're ready, send me a message or hit the "pull request" button on this ninjawars repository to request that your changes get pulled back in to the main ninjawars code.
For non-web-based contribution:
Download the ninjawars source code, change files, and send the changed text to us, firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll try to incorporate the changes on our side appropriately.
Learning how to use the git app on your local machine is highly recommended for any programmer or webdesigner, though there's a high initial learning curve. My recommendation, especially if you're running windows, is to try setting up git-tortoise http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/ as a really simple solution for starting to harness git's power. Of course, you can also always just use github's web interface to contribute patches, though that won't be as clean on our end.
