  1. Hi there, I'm very new to all of these, is there any kind heart can share me a piece of article/information on how can I compile source code from Github into a plugin??

    • Not Helpful

    Step 1: Don't steal others code
    Step 2: Profit
    • Optimistic Optimistic x 2
    • Creative Creative x 1
  2. Its free for download, I don't think its stealing?

    • Informative Informative x 1
  3. Hi there, I would like to ask, "Run 'maven clean package'" do you mean open Run Command and type in 'maven clean package'? It prompt out error, I think I misunderstand..
  4. You have to open an Command Shell (cmd.exe) and if maven is in your system path variable you will be able to execute maven from it.
    The script I mentioned above does that for you (sets the enviroment variables and all that stuff)
  5. When i type 'maven clean package' into my command prompt and run it, it shows me

    'maven' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    After I reinstall your windows batch file (to check again if there's any error), I spotted some red words and an error, I uploaded the image file, please have a look. Thanks :)

  6. Download the script again, the mirror the script was using was taken down or something.
  7. After installing, i notice there's a zip file apache-maven-3.3.9 in the folder, after unzipping it, is there anything I should do about it?

    I tried 'maven clean package' in command prompt again, but I still get the same message,
    'maven' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

  8. Close all the command prompts and open them again, see if that works.
  9. Nop, it doesn't do the trick, I even restarted my computer... Or maybe can you help me to compile and send me a download link first please? I'm actually can't wait to try out my app before end of the day...
  10. Send link of the repo
  11. Ok, my bad, I think I had made some misunderstanding in this post, so sorry, thanks for your patient anyway. :)
