Release Alpha

Well, I’ve been looking forward to it, and I’m glad to say that Cubehero is ready for some tire-kicking in a alpha release. They say that if you aren’t embarassed when you launch, you’ve launched too late. But first a few things!
Knowledge of git required to play

The current release is for people that know how to use git. I recommend using git 1.6.6+. If you don’t know what git is but want to learn, here’s a crash course and there are always plenty of good tutorials around the web. However, if you want to forge ahead, I have written a walkthrough below. In future releases, you won’t be required to know how to use git, but your version control powers will be limited.

You can only create public repositories

This means anyone can read or clone your repositories. So put your creative commons or public domain designs on cubehero. I will add private repositories in the near future so you can collaborate with clients privately.

Only the owner of the repository can write/push to it

While anyone can read and clone your repository, the owner is only one with permission to write and push to it. Eventually, you’ll want to work with coworkers on the same assembly, and you’ll want to be able to allow them to push and pull to the same repository.

Only linear histories

For now, cubehero isn’t able to handle multiple branches. It creates diffs between commits on a linear history. This is one of the things I’ll be fixing in a hurry.
