Here we go again!

Everybody can suggest and vote as many funny, helpful, inspirational, interesting, etc posts, as she likes. Then each week, we get a winner! On top, we also get a long list of great posts! Everybody wins! But also one! I am not sure if I will be around in time to announce every single winner, so feel free again to take matters into your own hands, too. Just like you did before :)

For now I will nominate:

New user and new programmer yet he mystically managed to use code tags and is even trying to learn classes. Would that all new comers were like this.

Creating a python code file from inside python command line, just to show that it can actually be imported and used. Sleek :mrgreen:

Yeah, that was pretty cool, and his post may even have led the OP to figure out the issue!

If you give a layperson a script that fixes everything in their life but they need to be able navigate a command line, pass flags, and understand directory hierarchies without being able to click something, you'll have wasted your time.

Hooray for suggesting pragmatic solutions and answering an only halfway python-related question in detailed steps and commands, then ??? profit! :mrgreen:

At the moment it should have four files in it:
Code: Select all
.git
.gitignore
readme.md
kill_the_colony.py

  1. Copy the actual graphic files you want to use into this directory.
  2. Change your code to load these graphic filenames directly instead of using the url.
  3. Open a git terminal (in whatever form this manifests on your OS)
  4. Type:
    Code: Select all
    git status
  5. Confirm that your graphics files are listed but not currently added.
  6. Type:
    Code: Select all
    git add *
  7. Type:
    Code: Select all
    git commit -m "Adding graphics files to repo."
  8. Type:
    Code: Select all
    git push origin master
  9. Type your github username.
  10. Type your github password (output will probably not show on terminal).
  11. ????
  12. Profit.
