getting started tutorial for workbench development?

Postby JohnForeman » Sat Dec 15, 2018 1:49 pm

Hi all,
i'm interested in doing some workbench design so i'm looking for a 'do this, then do that, then do this next' type of tutorial.
I'm new to python but not programming and i've never used github so the things i've found so far are not helping me over the hump.
I've been doing some things from the python console but i want to start adding my code to the interface.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
thanks

In other words there is still room for improvement in regards to a tutorial.
Since you're needing to learn a bunch of things at once....I suggest you learn a little about github
I wrote some of those git tutorials on the wiki. This will orient you how to setup a git environment on your machine that works in concert with your github repo.

Thanks did't know that one... the only thing i know is https://freecadweb.org/wiki/Workbench_creation

For later on
I found a problem when i want to run a .ui file i get some error that something goes wrong. (probably related to Qt5/ pyside2 and py3 but i have to dig deeper in that.

the reason i mentioned it now is that it would be great if there comes an example in that direction on the wiki or on github...
