Would you like to easily get your hands on the Tropo sample applications? I mean, you certainly can download them from the Tropo documentation website, but we’ve also made them very easy to download from our account on Github. All you need do to is go to:
If you just want to download the sample application files, simply click the “download” button and you’ll have a choice of a ZIP or tar file:
Alternatively, if you have the git version control system installed on your computer, you can simply clone our Github repository:
git clone git://github.com/voxeo/tropo-samples.git
That will pull a copy onto your local system. We will be updating the repository quite frequently over the next while, so from time to time you will want to do:
git pull origin master
in your “tropo-samples” directory. That will pull down the changes from our Github repo. If you are already a Github user and want to suggest changes for us, feel free to fork our repo and then request a pull. (And if that last sentence made no sense to you, that’s okay.)
If you would like to learn more about Git, you can watch my Emerging Tech Talk podcasts #24, Learning Git, Part 1: Intro to Version Control Systems and #25, Learning Git, Part 2: Getting Started with Git.
We hope this makes the source code more accessible to you all – please let us know what you think about making code available this way.
