How do I get a mod on GitHub?

by Phoenixflo44 » Wed May 16, 2018 16:06

This may sound a bit weird but I don't know how to upload a mod or map there. Can explain to me a step by step. But please just here. Because I don't get along on the page myself because everything is in English.

Greetings Phoenixflo44

Try this: https://git-scm.com/book/de/v2

The first chapter is in German, it might be helpful to understand the basics.

Don't upload large binary data to git. It's only suited for source code and rare changed, small binary files. The reason for that is because git keeps all the changes in its history, which makes change reverting (undoing) possible. Instead, consider using a fast and reliable web hoster to upload your world in an archive file.

Here are some DuckDuckGo results of pages with German explanations:

First create a new Repository.
There is a Upload files button near the green Clone or Download button.

Don't use the upload files button, it's the wrong approach for git

I suggest downloading the Github Desktop client and using that. Create a repository which is the mod directory - init.lua should immediately be in that dir. Learn what commits are and what push and pull means, and you're good to go. Do not upload zips on git

Better install the regular Git application and learn the most basic git commands.

I am. There is absolutely no complicated thing in installing and using Git. Even on Windows.

GitHub gives copy&paste-able lines to initialize a repository and do the first commit. After this for the most basic usage you literally need two commands (git commit -a and git push) to have your stuff versioned by GitHub and get automatic public availability.

For us it's easy, not so much for someone less technically competent

But you realize we talk about people who are able to program in Lua, right?
