GitHub repository

Couple months back I’ve prepared a GitHub repository to store all the models.

It can be that you don’t know what GitHub is – so with a help from Wikipedia:

GitHub, Inc. is a provider of Internet hosting for software development and version control using Git. It offers the distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git, plus its own features. It provides access control and several collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, continuous integration and wikis for every project.

GitHub offers its basic services free of charge. Its more advanced professional and enterprise services are commercial.


Well, this is almost silly, but after reading above you probably wonder what Git is – so with another help from Wikipedia:

Git (/ɡɪt/) is a software for tracking changes in any set of files, usually used for coordinating work among programmers collaboratively developing source code during software development. Its goals include speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows (thousands of parallel branches running on different systems).

Developed created by Linus Torvalds.


So what to do about it? Practically the easiest way is to visit the bbblimp project page on GitHub. There you can access all software resources for our blimp project, including OpenScad source code, Cura (3D printing) projects and some actual STL models.

Clicking on a file you can see its history and particular changes between each commits.

Now, why all that hustle? Actually this is super-handy. I really like our project and this public storage makes an excellent backup for all its resources. And not just this, all those are stored with their own history and accessible from anywhere. Finally, it also allows efficient collaboration and development on those.

If you’ve got all the way here, you are probably getting close to the bored-to-death stage, so a little nerdy reward in form of few jokes I found on Google (fun not guaranteed if you read about Git in this article for a first time in your life).
