GitHub has a limit imposed that only allows you to Fork a repository to a username/project once. This means that if you're trying to follow the Create An App instructions multiple times to create several MOOSE-based applications in one username you will get stuck.
The only way to resolve this is to manually clone Stork and push it to a new repository on GitHub. Here's how to do that:
If you haven't set up SSH keys for GitHub yet - this is the time to do it because it's going to save you quite a bit of time/pain:
In the username/project you want the new application to end up in click the
New Repository button:
ANIMAL_NAMEto refer to the repository name.
Click "Create Repository"
Assuming you went by our Getting Started instructions and already created a
~/projects directory in your home directory:
cd ~projects git clone email@example.com:idaholab/stork.git ANIMAL_NAME cd ANIMAL_NAME ./make_new_application.py git commit -am "Initial import of ANIMAL_NAME" git remote add new_repo firstname.lastname@example.org:USERNAME/ANIMAL_NAME.git git push -u new_repo master
USERNAME here refers to the username or project name where you created the bare repository.
Your repository on GitHub is now correct - but your local clone is messed up because the
origin remote points to Stork instead of to your new repository. The easiest way to fix this this is to delete your local directory and reclone:
cd ~/projects rm -rf ANIMAL_NAME git clone email@example.com:USERNAME/ANIMAL_NAME.git
By going through this process manually GitHub now won't keep track of this new application for us... so you need to tell us about it. You can email the mailing list and you should probably tweet about it using
