COMP110 Project Setup

After you have followed the instructions above, we recommend restarting your computer before finishing with these final steps:

1. Open Visual Studio Code (Later referred to as VSCode)

2. Select "View" from the top bar and click on "Command Palette..." in the box that pops up, type "Git: Clone" (should begin to autofill) and press enter.

3. Copy and paste the following URL into the bar that pops up: 

https://github.com/comp110/comp110-19f.git

4. Press Enter Twice. Select "Open Repository" once the option arises.

5. Open the "View" menu and select "Integrated Terminal" (or just "Terminal" on Mac). Type the following command then press enter and wait for the install to complete:

npm run pull

We'll learn more about what npm is later in the semester! (You may see some warnings, this is expected and you can safely ignore them.)

6. Open the "View" menu and select "Extensions". Search for the extension named "TSLint". Select it and press the install button for it. Then press the Reload button.

7. On Windows only, open the "View" menu and select "Command Palette". Type "Select Default Shell" and press enter. From the list that is presented next, select Git Bash. If you do not see it, try restarting your computer or come see us!
