Woof page updated

December 08, 2009 — BarryK
I have updated the Woof introduction page:

This includes explanation of how to get Woof out of the Bones online repository.

Note, I have just now updated Woof online, so it's my very latest, that I used to build Quirky 001 -- plus I fixed a couple of bugs in the 'devx' (a couple of missing symlinks).

A warning about 'bones download'...
The first time that you run 'bones download' that's fine, you will then have Woof. After that, if you see an announcement on my blog that I have uploaded a new version of Woof, you can run 'bones download' again to sync with the latest code. Note however, if you have modified any of the files, they will get over-written.

You would need to backup any customised files first. This is an area that I plan to improve.

Note that if you have user customisations that you think I might want to incorporate into Woof, if you run 'woof save' it will create a delta file in directory 'woof-bones' that you can email to me.


Great Step Forward
