Cloning iDempiere

iDempiere sources are hosted at GitHub, you can download the complete project with:

cd $HOME/sources
git clone https://github.com/idempiere/idempiere.git

Please replace $HOME/sources with the folder where you wish to download the whole sources, at least 4 GB are required.

Set the working version

If you are going to work with iDempiere development version (actually > 7.1) please execute:

cd $HOME/sources/idempiere
git checkout master

If you are going to work with iDempiere version 7.1:

cd $HOME/sources/idempiere
git checkout release-7.1

Local experimentation clone

Once you have downloaded the sources from GitHub you can easily clone locally your downloaded repository (for example for experimentation purposes) with an instruction like this:

cd $HOME/sources
git clone idempiere myexperiment

This way you could experiment with a local clone instead of the downloaded from GitHub (in order to keep it pristine).

Keeping up to date

When you want to synchronize your local clone with GitHub again you can do it with:

cd $HOME/sources/idempiere
git pull

and/or, similarly for your local clone

cd $HOME/sources/myexperiment
git pull

Note that first one will pull from GitHub, and second will pull from your local clone.
