ThinkUp users have three options for installing the application:
Each option gets progressively more involved. You may find it worthwhile to execute each one in order, advancing to the next as you get comfortable with each step.
Download the .tgz or .zip files and follow the installation instructions to create a working version of ThinkUp on your own server. Using this method you will only be able to install ThinkUp, not contribute code to it. The last tagged version is not the most up-to-date copy of the code.
ssh into your development server with git installed and run the following commands to download the files and make it easy to merge updates as the project progresses:
$ git clone git://github.com/ginatrapani/ThinkUp.git $ git pull origin
See the Developer Guide: Get the Source Code from GitHub and Keep It Updated for instructions on how to do this.
