Quick GitHub Guide

If all you want to do is to download the latest version of the software for your avionics project, simply follow these steps:

  1. Click on the link for software you want to download from my GitHub. For example https://github.com/ExperimentalAvionics/Avionics_Display_19264
  2. Click on the “Clone or Download” button (Green button on the right hand side)
  3. Click “Download ZIP”. It will initiate the file download. The file name will be something like Avionics_Display_19264-master.zip
  4. Unzip the downloaded file into the folder where all your other Arduino projects are. On Windows it will be something like c:\Users\<MyName>\Documents\Arduino\
  5. The unzipped folder name will look like BlahBlahBlah-master. You need to rename it removing the “-master”. In our example the unzipped folder will have name Avionics_Display_19264-master
    You need to rename it to Avionics_Display_19264
  6. Start your Arduino IDE and open up the Avionics_Display_19264.ino file. Note the name of the file to open is the same name as the folder.
  7. Have fun!

For those who want to contribute to the project but dont know how to use GitHub collaboration features, I recommend to watch some YouTube videos on this subject.
