Total Github newbie question for Hallowing

by COHillway on Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:24 am

This is going to be a total newbie question: how do you download projects on Github?

I was following the instructions for the All-seeing skull

It told me to try the blink sketch first, which I did, but now I am very confused about how to download all the files from Github to get the eye back. I have not used Github before and it is not very intuitive. I can copy the .ino code, but I think I need all the graphics folders and all that, but I am at a loss of how to download all of the things I need.

Any help is appreciated.

It seems like it only lets you download the ENTIRE repository natively, so I used GitZip to download just the subfolders I wanted.
It has a web interface or Chrome extension.

yeah basically you would download the entire zip. there's no way right now to download just part of the repository
