New developer

by RGA » Post

Hello everyone,

(First I hope this is the good place to ask what I have to)

I just started to make a fork of minetest to discover how the code is, and I would like to participate in engine development, so:

- I am on macOS and I use xcode to run minetest. I did some minor changes to make it work and I would to discuss them on IRC to see if they can bee pushed in upstream. I am not able to speak on the IRC dev channel, but it seems to be normal as it display it is muted. Do have to contact someone to get an access ?(I am not used to IRC maybe I forgot something to set).

- Is there a place where we can have ready projects files? for exemple I would like to share the xcode project I made so that it is no more in my fork. Can it be interesting to have something in place so that every new developer could start to work as quickly as possible ?

Concerning the changes I made:
In file client.cpp, I replaced :

Code: Select all

infostream << sstr << std::endl;
by

Code: Select all

infostream << sstr.str() << std::endl;
In class Settings

Code: Select all

I replaced u64 with uint64_t
Thanks !

(And yes I know how to program in c++, so I can start to work as soon I will be used to the engine structure)

webchat is muted on #minetest-dev, so you got to use a 'proper' client.

Hexchat is open source and works just fine there.

You're already on github - I don't understand this question.

Maybe I didnt well explain my question. I Just wanted to share my project directly in minetest github,but if it has to stay in mine there is no problem.

Make a pull request from your fork. If they like it, it becomes core.
