Subversion (SVN) is version control software that allows users to download the very latest version of the trunc or a branch without having to wait for someone to get around to packaging it. See Subversion for more details. The source code is available for downloading from June 17th 2014.
After registration you will have access to the Subversion server, managing the open source code. When you have downloaded the source code it can be compiled using some tools. iMOD only runs on Windows, the tools you need are:
Follow the instructions at "Get started, How to register".
After registration you can access the Subversion repository. Use your internet browser to have a look at svn.oss.deltares.nl. Repository "iMOD" contains branches (isolated develop versions), tags (fully tested, stable versions) and the trunk (where all updates, merges and bug fixes happen). Choose a version you want to download. As a start, use a stable, fully tested version from the tags, for example "https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/iMOD/tags/version5.1". The best version currently available is the tagged version with the highest version number.
TortoiseSVN is a convenient SVN client for Windows that integrates with Windows Explorer.
Go to Windows Explorer (hit WIN+E or right-click on the Start button and click Explore), and create a new folder in a location of your choice. You may want to name it something like "iMOD_repository."WARNING: Do not use a directory name containing spaces.
Right click on that folder and choose "SVN Checkout". Use The URL of your choice, for example "https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/iMOD/tags/2871". Click "Ok" to download this version of the source code.
You will now be prompted for your username and password (these are the same as your credentials for the community environment). The download will start automatically. See the manual of TortoiseSVN for more information.
Choose a directory where you want the source code to be placed and execute the checkout command. Example (to put the source code in the newly created directory "iMOD_repository"):
svn checkout https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/iMOD/tags/version5.2 iMOD_repository
You will now be prompted for your username and password (these are the same as your credentials for the community environment). The download will start automatically. See the manual of Subversion for more information.
