Git Source Repository
Deluge's source code is always available through our Git repository.
To get a copy of the code, you will need to clone it from the repository then see the Installation Guide.
The first step is to clone our git repos:
git clone git://deluge-torrent.org/deluge.git
This will create a deluge directory with a copy of the repo so if you change into this directory you can start using git commands.
There are multiple branches or tags that you can choose from, but the main two are the current stable branch and the development branch.
List the branches, including remote branches:
git branch -a
If you want to use a different branch than the default selected (master) then you will need to create a local copy of the remote branch. In this example we create branch '1.3-stable' as a local copy of the remote branch 'origin/1.3-stable' and switch to it:
git checkout -b 1.3-stable origin/1.3-stable
To switch between your local branches use the following commands:
Development:git checkout master
Stable:git checkout 1.3-stable
Either of these commands will show the current branch you are using:
git branch git status
You only need to do a clone once, after that you can simply update the branch by pulling changes from the repo.
Assuming you are in the folder you cloned to:
Now your tree is synchronized to the latest revision in our repository!
