I everyone, I'm an engineering student and I'm new on Eclipse IDE. For a project, I need to open in Eclipse a source code from GitHub but I don't even know which files to choose and how to do it...
I tried many times importing the project with the URL but it's not working at all...
If someone can help me it would be very kind...

Thank you guys !


GitHub URL : https://github.com/RAKWireless/Products_practice_based_on_RUI_v2.0/tree/master/based%20on%20RAK811/RAK5205

Usually the point in github that has the green CODE button is the one I use.
The one you are interested in seems to be at:
https://github.com/RAKWireless/Products_practice_based_on_RUI_v2.0

And the git address (for https) is:
https://github.com/RAKWireless/Products_practice_based_on_RUI_v2.0.git

FWIW, I interact with git outside of Eclipse using the git CLI. IMHO, it's easier.

Great it's working thank you ! And what is the "tag fetching strategy" ? I didn't find any information on it ?

It's a git thing. You can get the tags along with the code, etc.
https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Basics-Tagging

If you aren't going to be doing commits or keep up-to-date,
you probably don't need tags.

If you are planning on using git to its fullest you should read:
https://git-scm.com/doc
