Hello, im completely new to working with open-source software and at the moment I am very lost. I understand that the source code is located in the Alfresco repo on Github(https://github.com/Alfresco). What I'm trying to do is aquring Alfresco Community source code and modify it for a project im working on. Do i download each repo from the links below, import it into an ide like eclipse and connect eclipse to the tomcat server? Also is this the correct repo(https://github.com/Alfresco/share)for Alfresco Share that will open in the browser when i connect it to the Tomcat server?
Well, Alfresco provides many ways for the extensions which you use to create/modify OOTB code.
Personally, I think you should modify source code only if you see some very serious bug and you want to support creators. Otherwise, it's better to create your own extension (and maybe even share it with the community ;P )
Anyway, do not forget about the source code. It's a huge "knowledge repository" which will help you a lot while developing your own customizations.
That's exactly what I want to do. To help fix bugs and support the creators. What I'm seeking is not the extension but the source code for Alfresco itself. How would I even begin to put together the source code that is found on the Alfresco Github Repository to get it up and running?
