Yes, that seems to work. Do you know if when a binary file is uploaded to be a gist, is there a limit on which file types (extensions) are accepted? What I mean is, could a standard FreeCAD document file (e.g. file.FCStd) be uploaded to become a binary gist?

thanks

EDIT:(Test of binary version control)
Big over 4 MB Original Link tracking spesific version of file
https://gist.github.com/kkoksvik/5a0bd5 ... 20mm.fcstd

Changed approx 3.3MB Link tracking latest file
https://gist.github.com/kkoksvik/5a0bd5 ... 20mm.fcstd

There is no way, as far as I can see to add binary files via normal web interface.
Use git client on your pc to add binary files.

PS: Thanks to Juan Gonzalez Gomez https://plus.google.com/+JuanGonzalezGo ... ubEd4wLoQ4 for this nice part

thanks for the test links to the gist files, they all worked perfectly here on v0.14 on Mac OS X using right-click 'Save File As' to download them.

Very nice drawings.

In git, where in the interface is the option to "add binary file"? Clicking "add file" seems to simply add another paste window on the screen.

I've created a gist for Python script at Python Assistant Window which seems to work OK, but can't figure out how to do the same with a binary file.

thanks

[edit]
I should say that I know virtually nothing about git, and what I know is on the page git for users which is supposed to be documentation for casual users of git

if I can get it figured out how to use gist for binary files then I can write it up for people to use on the Wiki pages.

I am unfamiliar with mac and git Gui. But i would try to

1 clone the Github repo to your disk
2 add binary file to the local folder containing the repo. Use your filemanager(finder?)
3 Use syncronice command from Gui.

What is a paste window?

The link to your script is pointing to a spesific version of it. To link to the newest version even after a version change remove the version information witch is the long number between /raw/ and /Python Assistant Window/
  • /raw/bdc7bf37a1f81dceda3f08ff0bb6d00688506a98/Python Assistant Window
.

This way you will not need to edit web pages or documentation when changes are made to scripts or other files in git. If people need to have a look at old revisions they can do so on github.

may be because it for free formula that must be open code ??

Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

I have free acount. The limit is that you have to use your git client to be able to add binary files.

This is how I did it
EDIT(added git add -A)
In some folder test

git clone git@gist.github.com:/735fee0727a038425a11.git
cd 735fee0727a038425a11
cp /home/username/somebinaryfile.bin .
git add -A
git commit
git push

Your binary file is uploaded to the gist

cp /home/username/somebinaryfile.bin .
git commit -a
git push

Your binary file is uploaded to the gist
I had some error messages as follows:

Code: Select all

git clone git@gist.github.com:/735fee0727a038425a11.git
generated:

Code: Select all

Cloning into '735fee0727a038425a11'...

and the repository exists.
so I used:

Code: Select all

git clone https://gist.github.com/piffpoof/735fee0727a038425a11.git
to which I got:

Code: Select all

Cloning into '735fee0727a038425a11'...

Unpacking objects: 100% (3/3), done.
Checking connectivity... done.
which at least didn't have an error message.
  • I then had FreeCAD save a file named "emptyHouse.FCstd" into the test directory which I had cloned the git repository into
  • there were then 2 files in the test directory: the Python script from earlier and the FreecAD document just saved to there
then I tried:

Code: Select all

 git commit -a
which generated:

Code: Select all

On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.

Untracked files:
	emptyHouse.FCStd

nothing added to commit but untracked files present
which didn't look so good, but I carried on with:

Code: Select all

git push
which produced:

Code: Select all

Username for 'https://gist.github.com': piffpoof
Password for 'https://piffpoof@gist.github.com': 
Everything up-to-date
Going back to the web interface, there is no binary file. I signed out and back in and still nothing.

Probably I am missing something simple?

Perhaps someone with more extensive git experience can identify what is missing/wrong

Sorry, missed a step

Try:

git add -A

git commit

git push

This throws me into vim to add a line describing the commit, from which I not sure how to exit, supposedly ":q" is supposed to exit but only enters those characters when I try it. I've tried control-Q and various others but the Terminal session is simply caught by vim.

The following is pre-loaded into the vim editor:
