Talk:EIG:Download Source Code

From Eclipsepedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Greetings,

while trying to get the samples source code following the guide, I ran into a problem. I'm working on Windows behind a proxy which requires authentication and I wasn't able to git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git both from egit and git CLI. I got Git error: fatal: unable to connect a socket (Invalid argument) from the CLI and connection timeout from egit.

I was however able to git clone http://git.eclipse.org/c/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git. I think you should add it to the guide as it took me some time to figure out the right URL.

Also, it would be great to add the possibility to simply git clone http://git.eclipse.org/c/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git/tree/examples/bundles/EXAMPLE_NAME since being able to grab a single bundle's source code of interest is faster and more efficient than cloning an entire repository.

Cheers
