BUMP
Could somebody kindly explain to me the differences in selecting the "git" options ?




index.php/fa/43293/0/This may sound like I am splitting hair , but
Python code has NO project , only main executable.
I am currently experimenting with File -> Import -> Git
and all of the options are referring to "project" - either directly or indirectly, but still
calling for "project".
I am taking / optioning "Repositories from github " option.
Any comments ?

The Eclipse IDE manages your resources using a workspace and projects, so you must always have a project to do
anything more complicated than editing a text file as a text file. That is where it keeps track of what Java libraries
to compile against to build a Java application, or which version of the Python syntax applies to the files you're
editing. PyDev has a wizard explicitly for creating projects, so I'm confused why you're even looking at the Git
group of Import wizards.

You are editing your post to "bump" it, but this seems to overlook that Nitin tried to answer you already. At some point you will have to import projects from your cloned Git repository because, a sNitin suggests, a workspace will be empty unless it contains one or more projects.

If the changing banner text isn't descriptive enough, no harm should be done until you hit the Finish button in a wizard. The eGit User Guide doesn't mention the "Repositories from GitHub" wizard, but it probably combines cloning a repo from there with the smart import wizard.

As much as I am ignorant about coding and cloning in Python, cloning the GitHub repository using three different options has been a disaster.
It is not my style to blindly follow the limited documents and only to reach dead end .
I cannot believe Eclipse is supporting a simple clone and some other automated process without providing progress messages.
As I said before - Eclipse is not a good IDE for cloning Python code. But the code was written using Qt and I won't even try to clone it to Qt.
But I have reached, painfully, a good point to start modifying the code - using Eclipse.
Cheers.
