How do you follow the tutorial?

I’m trying to jump into app development but I’m finding it difficult when the first link in the tutorial is a 404 link on github.

After the development tool has been installed

It’s really hard to get past that first step when it continues with

ncdev setup core --dir nextcloud --branch $BRANCH

I have to assume ncdev is a part of the elusive development tool.

Do you have a link to the tutorial you are trying to follow?

https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/9/developer_manual/app/tutorial.html

Ah, I will fix the docs soon, for now you can do the following:

  • To install Nextcloud use either the zip from our downloads page, or git directly:

    git clone git@github.com:nextcloud/server.git --branch $BRANCH
    git submodule init
    git submodule update
    
  • To create the app, visit the app store: https://apps.nextcloud.com/developer/apps/generate
