GitHub - Am I being stupid?


Recommended Posts

Posted · GitHub - Am I being stupid?

I'm no github expert but what I do is usually to just go to the main page for the project and then click on the "Download zip" button on the right side about half way down the page. Then you'll get a zip file of all the files and you can pick and choose whatever you want from that.

Otherwise I guess clicking "View raw" and then saving the resulting page as a .step file could work?

    Nope. It's a classic case of programmers creating a tool for programmers. "Regular people usability" is very low on the priority list. I'm sure all the command line tools and such when properly integrated into your tool chain makes it work very well, but for someone who's just passing by it's a bit of a pain.
