How should I setup my development environment (repositories)

Post by Fucitol »

Hi all,

I'm interested in working with the code for the crazyflie with no particular goal. Although I have ample experience with different programming languages, setting up a proper development environment is a bit unclear.

What I'd like is to have the crazyflie repositories (pc client and firmware) which I can easily keep up to date with the ones on Bitbucket but also be able to import work done by others (for example the hovering code by Phiamo).

Should I make a fork of the official Bitbucket repo(s)? And if yes, can I for instance fork/clone changes from someone else as a branch or does this require a new clone that lives next to the official one? I don't think that I will need to make pull requests in the official repository since it will be mostly be hacking a bit to get experienced with the onboard electronics and processing available data etc.

For me it doesn't really matter on what platform I'm on since I use Linux, Max OSX and Windows on a regular basis and using my Mac for flying (thus also compiling the firmware etc).

Thanks for any advice!

Hi Fucitol

You should consider forking the repository only if you want to contribute by fixing bugs or adding functionnalities, otherwise don't bother there is no need for it ;)
