Download a ZIP
If you just want some code, use the ⇛ ZIP download button.
Clone this repository
Once you have fossil.exe installed however, it becomes quite trivial to work with the repository:
fossil clone http://fossil.include-once.org/clickycoloury/ clicky.fossil # ↑ ↑ ↑ # action URL target repo file
Then you can open (=expands files from trunk) that repository:
fossil open clicky.fossil
And lastly invoke the server and your browser:
That would give you a local copy of what you see here.
Commiting and stuff
Now that you have a working checkout, you can edit files to your liking.
Your changes will be reflected as soon as you commit them:
fossil ci modules/wpf.psm1
Or add new files of course:
fossil add tools/beta/newscript.ps1 fossil ci
Syncing and sharing.
Unlike GIT, sharing code is not some arcane merging and pulling andwhathaveyou. Fossil is optimized for more practical and realistic scenarios - with a couple of developers and a shared repository:
fossil sync http://fossil.include-once.org/clickycoloury/
And simply updating changes from others:
Btw, if you want commit access here; just ask. (Little risk; don't worry. Fossil does not allow history corruption.)
