STLVNUB is continuing his development of ProjectRevo which I know is set to become the complete all in one RevoBoot app for starting from scratch and finishing with a bootable disk. I am happy to leave that to his talents as some of what he's doing is far more advanced than I have managed to grasp so far and to be honest is way more advanced than what I ever imagined when I started my script for helping out here. So well done STLVNUB.
But in the mean time, I've wanted to learn to use git and the best way for me was to use it. So for that, I took my previously posted
version of ProjectRevolution_1.9pre_a and have been re-vamping it to be a simple version of a tool to help new users with RevoBoot. I have called it RevoBuilder and have concentrated on trying to keep is simple and user friendly. You can download the package from my git repository at: https://github.com/b...osx/RevoBuilder
The basis of the package is to allow you to download the latest RevoBoot source code from Samantha's git repository, build your config data, edit the settings.h file and compile RevoBoot, all in hopefully a more informed way. That's all. The operations are all done manually one step at a time and doesn't have the automation options as STLVNUB's ProjectRevo. It also doesn't attempt to build any kind of bootable media and is in no way competing with STLVNUB's ProjectRevo. And once I get more familiar with git, then maybe the good parts of this (if any) can be merged in to STLVNUB's branch to help create a truly useful project.
You will need to have Apple's developer tools installed and git set up on your system and if you haven't already then there's instructions included in the ReadMe and in the scripts.
For an example of how to use it, from the the main menu, you can run options 1, 5, 6 then 8 to compile RevoBoot. Though whether or not the compiled boot file actually boots your system will be down to the directives set in your settings.h file.
If anybody wants to do any testing then I'll be grateful and I look forward to hearing feedback.
ps. The current version is good to operate with Sam's latest commit, though I'm aware that she'll change the version numbering in the next commit at which point I'll amend this to reflect it.
EDIT: RevoBuilder has now been updated to work with the latest RevoBoot v1.0.04
