The Open-Source Repositories are located on GitHub and use Git as their version control system. Thus, you need the Git version control system installed on your machine.
- Windows: we suggest using Fork. It comes with a pre-installed Git instance and provides an easy and powerful GUI.
After the installation, the folder containing Fork’s internal Git (usually %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Fork\gitInstance\2.39.1\bin\) should be added to the %PATH% environment variable.
Alternatively, you may download and install Git as a command-line utility and add it to %PATH%.
- Ubuntu Linux: sudo apt install git
- Mac OS: install the Developer Tools. Run the git command in the Terminal and it will prompt for installation.
Below we will assume the development is done in the <develop> folder:
- Windows: c:\develop
- Linux: ~/develop (/home/<user>/develop)
- Mac OS: ~/develop (/Users/<user>/develop)
Inside the <develop> folder run the below command from the command line/Terminal:
git clone <url>
git clone https://github.com/networkoptix/nx_open
After the sources are fetched, they will be located in the <develop> subfolder
Alternatively, you can clone the repositories to the <develop> folder using Fork on Windows/Mac:
