Welcome to the git home for the bioruby project. Here’s where all development of the project goes on.
How does collaboration work?
To get a feel for how collaboration using git works, have a look at this blog post by DrNic.
This screencast is another must-see. Apart from other things, it explains different ways of collaborating (fast-forward to 48min14sec): the central repository model, the dictator and lieutenants model and the integration manager model. Bioruby uses something like this integration manager model, but with 3 or 4 integration managers instead of just one. Also, this screencast has a good explanation of how you can manage your local bioruby clone and play with different branches (production, development, feature branches, …). You’ll have to fast-forward to 38min54sec for that.
Finally, see here for the implementation for bioruby.
How to get your own copy
There are several ways of getting a copy of bioruby.
- Install the gem:
gem sources -a http://gems.github.com (you only have to do this once)
gem install bio
- Create a local clone
git clone http://github.com/bioruby/bioruby.git
- Create a fork on github: Click the “fork” button.
How to get to a remote branch
There might be other branches than just master (e.g. biohackathon2008). To make that locally available, use
git checkout —track -b biohackathon2008 origin/biohackathon2008
See the bioruby homepage.
