Thanks for the feedback, Fanchen.
The possible commands are not really listed in any particular order, but I suppose I should mention that it is a good thing to run the setup command first, before other. Especially as it really only is a command that has to be run once.

Once again, thank you. And I hope you're enjoying working with it.

hey mrgoldy

when I try to install it via the info you said here
install
Command: sh studio install
Parameters: none
Example: sh studio install
Explanation:
This will take care of the 'database setup' of your local board.
It ensures all the correct tables are installed, with the correct columns and default values.
For this command the $phpbb_functional_url is required in the test_config.php file.
This ensures that we can re-install the board, overriding an existing installation.
To accomplish this, the studio script makes use of the functional tests provided by phpBB,
which do not have to be of further concern to you for the sake of using the studio script.
The credentials for the admin account on the local board are:
username: admin
password: adminadmin
then it says

Code: Select all

PHP Fatal error:  Composer dependencies have not been set up yet, run 'php ../composer.phar install' from the phpBB directory to do so. in D:\Ampps\www\phpbbfork\phpBB\includes\startup.php on line 80

Fatal error: Composer dependencies have not been set up yet, run 'php ../composer.phar install' from the phpBB directory to do so. in D:\Ampps\www\phpbbfork\phpBB\includes\startup.php on line 80
Is this normal?

Yes, you need to install the dependecies before you can use phpBB from that github-repository. Just run the displayed command: php ../composer.phar install

It's the entire point of this script to make it easier, so that should not be necessary.

@TWEagle,
Have a look at the command above it: switch.

"Each branch has its own code, database setup and dependencies (the vendor folder).
This command takes care of the code and dependencies, for the database setup you will have to use the install command."


So you'll first have to run sh studio switch <branch>.
This command will afterwards automatically ask if you want to 'Install the board'.

It depends on the point of view and on how you mean "user friendly", I for example started many years ago (I guess before you ever used SVN or phpBB) with SVN and I found really "user friendly" the same Tortoise-SVN, used to that I went on with my pursuit and updated myself to Tortoise-GIT very easily. I passed on my knowledge about this to mrgoldy, in this case with private tutorials, well received. We are happy with this and we are not complaining, in fact we can do practically anything that can be requested with extreme ease. I don't find that your suggestion was expressed in the right way so, probably you could have said that you are better off with this or that system, that's fine. Anyway the tutorial has been explained with the systems we usually use, nothing easier you can take note of and use them with your own systems, just know what we are talking about.
So I recommend each of us to use our own system, as nothing changes about GIT and we can't give detailed suggestions regarding each app, anyone who feels able to provide them is welcome to post the details here. Thank you. :D

Oh, even Tortoise-GIT is FREE. ;)

Don't know what a "tortise" is but as I said,
it depends on the points of view and knowledge related to each app, I don't find anything comical about that, as you do. :ugeek: ;)

@moderators: may I suggest to move this discussion to https://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=99 ? (general development)
