Github support on inventortown

I’ve now added support for cloning a github project into your Inventortown project. Basically:

1. Create a new empty project on Inventortown.
2. Click the ‘git clone’ on the left
3. Enter the readonly address for the github project you want to clone. For example git://
4. If your project had multiple main-files, you have to delete the ones you don’t want (the example has several files with main in them).
5. If your project had a directory structure, you may have to change the relative include files. The above function copies ALL the .h and .c files into a single directory, so you have to change files because of this.
6. Click compile…

It’s a very untested function. Please report if it works or not for you, and give feedback to how you’d like the function improved.

  1. I don’t know what kind of backend you’re using for InventorTown, but if it were possible to get your system hooked up to IAR (the KickStart version would be fine for proof-of-concept), this would be the first step in being able to host a full IAR installation and sharing it among a number of users (assuming that’s no precluded by the IAR license). One certainly wouldn’t get the benefit of Embedded Workbench’s debugger like you’d get if one had a local license, but at least compiling/linking programs larger than 4/8Kb would be possible.

    It’s looking good!
