JACK Source Code Repository

JACK uses Git as its source control system. Our central git repository is hosted by Github. We are currently working toward linking the repositories for Jack1 and Jack2 but this work is not complete, so for now the commands to get a copy of the source are a little different depending on which tree/version you want.

Jack1 Git Repository

Those without write access can access the repository with these commands:

git clone git://github.com/jackaudio/jack1.git
cd jack1
git submodule init
git submodule update
You can also point a web browser at
https://github.com/jackaudio/jack1
to be able to browse current source code and full history with all the usual Github goodies.

Write Access

Those who have been granted write access and have supplied a public key can clone the repository with the following commands:

git clone git@github.com:jackaudio/jack1.git
cd jack1
git submodule init
git submodule update
You must then edit the .git/config file within jack1 so that the submodule entries correctly reference the write-access URL. They should look like this:
[submodule "example-clients"]
	url = git://github.com/jackaudio/example-clients.git
[submodule "jack"]
	url = git://github.com/jackaudio/headers.git
[submodule "tools"]
	url = git://github.com/jackaudio/tools.git

Jack2 Git Repository

Those without write access can access the repository with this command:

git clone git://github.com/jackaudio/jack2.git
You can also point a web browser at
https://github.com/jackaudio/jack2
to be able to browse current source code and full history with all the usual Github goodies.

Write Access

Those who have been granted write access and have supplied a public key can get to the repository with the following command:

git clone git@github.com:jackaudio/jack2.git
Eventually the same setup for the submodules will be required as for Jack1, but this is not true at this time.
