Table Of Contents


Welcome to the Cmdr project, written by Andreas Kupries.

For availability please read Cmdr - How To Get The Sources.

The audience of this document are anyone wishing to either have just a look at Cmdr's sources, or to build the project, or to extend and modify it. The list of Related Documents provides references to information for the latter two.


The official repository of the project is at https:/core.tcl.tk/akupries/cmdr. A mirror has been set up at http://chiselapp.com/user/andreas_kupries/repository/Kettle, in case of trouble with the main location.


Assuming that you simply wish to look at the sources of the project, or build a specific revision, the easiest way of retrieving the sources is to:

  1. Log as "anonymous" into the repository (see Location). Use the semi-random password in the captcha.

  2. Go to the "Timeline".

  3. Choose the revision you wish to have and

  4. follow its link to its detailed information page.

  5. On that page, choose either the "ZIP" or "Tarball" link to get a copy of this revision in the format of your choice.

Source Code Management

For the curious (or a developer-to-be), the sources of this project are managed by the Fossil SCM. Binaries for popular platforms can be found directly at its download page.

With that tool available the full history of our project can be retrieved via:

fossil clone https:/core.tcl.tk/akupries/cmdr cmdr.fossil

followed by

mkdir cmdr
cd    cmdr
fossil open ../cmdr.fossil

to get a checkout of the head of the trunk.
