Create Your own openATTIC git Fork on BitBucketΒΆ

The openATTIC source code is managed using the git distributed version control system.

Git offers you a full-fledged version control, where you can commit and manage your source code locally and also exchange your modifications with other developers by pushing and pulling change sets across repositories.

If you’re new to git, take a look at the git documentation web site. This will teach you the basics of how to get started.

The openATTIC source code repository is publicly hosted in a git Repository on BitBucket.

A “fork” is a remote git clone of a repository. Every openATTIC developer makes code modifications on a local copy (clone) of his fork before they are merged into the main repository via pull requests. See Contributing Code to openATTIC for instructions on how to get your code contributions included in the openATTIC main repository.

The quickest way to create a local clone of the main openATTIC git repository is to simply run the following command:

$ git clone

However, if you would like to collaborate with the openATTIC developers, you should consider creating a user account on BitBucket and create a “Fork”. We require real user names over pseudonyms when working with contributors.

Once you are logged into BitBucket, go to the openATTIC main repository and click Fork on the left side under ACTIONS. Now you should have your own openATTIC fork on BitBucket, which will be used to create a local copy (clone). You can find your repository’s SSH or HTTPS URL in the top right corner of the repository overview page. Use this URL with git clone to create your local development clone.

Take a look at the BitBucket Documentation for further instructions on how to use BitBucket and how to work with repositories.
