Day for Night — re-coded
Although the deadline for submissions for the Day for Night festival has now passed, feel free to contribute a sketch.
This project requires openFrameworks 0.9.0. You can download it from the oF website if you don't already have it installed.
You'll also need to have your username added to the GitHub project, so have Zach add you if he hasn't already. Alternatively, feel free to create your own fork and open a pull request to have your changes merged into the upstream repository.
1. Find an artist to work with
Take a look at the project wiki and find an artist you'd like to work with.
2. Checkout the project from GitHub
In you openFrameworks
apps folder, create a new folder for the "Day for Night" project. Then
cd into that folder using the terminal and checkout the project from GitHub:
git clone https://github.com/ofZach/dayForNightSFPC.git
3. Make a branch It's probably a good idea to work in your own branch. Actually, probably not totally necessary if you're making a sketch but feel free to do it if you want :).
Create a new branch:
cd dayForNightSFPC git checkout -b branchName
4. Generate a new scene
Now you can use the scene generator script to generate a new scene. This will copy the
emptyScene files and rename based on your new scene name.
Use the terminal to
cd into your project folder and run the following, substituting
sceneName with the name of your scene:
It will copy the following files and create new files for your new scene:
Now you you can drag the new folder in the
scenes folder into XCode. Make sure to use these settings if you drag the folder in:
5. Submitting Changes
There are two different workflows for submitting changes:
If you're adding a new scene and not changing the architecture
Check to make sure you don't have uncommitted changes (commit them if you do):
Now checkout the master branch and make sure it's up to date:
git checkout master git pull
Now merge in your branch:
git merge branchName
Now push your changes to the repo:
If you're making architectural changes
It's probably better to push your branch instead of merging directly into
master, then submit a pull request.
Check to make sure you don't have uncommitted changes in your branch (commit them if you do):
Now push your branch to GitHub:
git push origin branchName
Now submit a pull request via the GitHub web interface.
