Last week during the holidays I had some downtime, so I decided to “man up” and dive head first into the pool. Until then, I used every excuse to avoid GitHub, but I finally caved.
And I’m glad that I did.
I wanted to be like Mike, so I rolled up my sleeves as I often do, and got my hands dirty.
Using Github as a Mind Dump
To the point, and the primary reason for this post, is that I finally learned how to create repositories on Github. I tried using the command line in terminal, but got TKO’ed quickly.
Thankfully there’s a GitHub for Mac app that’s available, which basically makes it idiot-proof for creating, uploading and maintaining repositories. Something I really needed.
Why am I telling you all of this?
I’ll make it short and sweet and simply give you the 411 on my plans. I’m going to use my Github account to post code and themes that will be freely available to download.
Consider this a mind dump, where I’ll publish things that don’t make it to StudioPress or are a result of late-night Starbucks, iTunes and design inspiration that I think you’ll enjoy.
To be fair, this code will be unsupported, often raw and at times, might not make sense.
Forking my Themes
Cutting to the chase, I’ll be doing this for all of the custom themes I use here on my blog and other places — I’m giving you permission, and even providing the links to…
Yes, this is legit. And if you don’t believe me, check out Andrew Barnett’s website.
So for those of you who can read between the lines, you might want to follow me on Github as there’s a pretty good chance you’ll see some more stuff coming.
