Local Yarn Code

How to Use This Repo

How to use this repo

You can “use” this repo by clicking around and reading code, wiki pages, etc.

But for those who have an account with the right permissions, it can also be used to check out a version-controlled copy of the code.

I’m not yet giving out such accounts, not until the whole project is live. But, for the curious, this is how it would work if you had one:

  1. If you don’t already have it, download the Fossil executable and put it on your $PATH
  2. Clone this repository:
    > fossil clone -u https://user:password@thelocalyarn.com/cgi-bin/yarncode yarn.fossil
  3. You might as well set autosync to 0 (off) or to pullonly. (See below for more info about why):
    > fossil settings autosync 0
  4. “Check out” the latest version of the source code into your current directory:
    > fossil open myclone.fossil
  5. Fiddle with the source code as you see fit. Read Fossil Quick Start.
  6. You can also open your own local copy of the web UI:
    > fossil ui
  7. To get the latest version of the code:
    > fossil pull
