Basic help downloading code

Hi, I need help downloading the plugin below. I don’t speak code and have not downloaded from GITHUB before. I’m hoping this can be used with EEGLAB, but I cannot tell.

Processing_GUI/ConvertToWAV/convertToWAV.pde

Thanks!!
Chris

Hi @rauhoffc! :wave: Welcome to the Community!

In general, downloading a zip file of a repository, or cloning it, will give you a copy of the source code, ready to be worked on. That’s great if you’re a developer, but it sounds like you were looking to download the finished project, rather than the raw code?

If the compiled project is available, you’ll be able to download it from the Releases section of the repository:

https://docs.github.com/en/github/administering-a-repository/about-releases

If you need help with that specific project, there are a few places we suggest you look:

  • its SUPPORT or README file, which may include contact information or an official website
  • its Issues tab, where you can report bugs
  • the owner’s GitHub profile, which may include contact information

I hope that helps!

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I’m likely not capable of making GitHub work since I don’t understand the basic nomenclature. I’ve found this one program that maybe does what I want but I’m unclear where to start.
For instance;

  1. is this a stand alone program or does it fit within another program?
  2. do I have to insert code in a certain place? I have no idea.

I know it isn’t you job to hold my hand, but I’m afraid someone must if this is going to work.

I’ve contacted the owner/creator, but no luck.

I’ll pay for help, but I don’t even know how to go about finding someone.

Anyway, thanks.

Hi Chris - I’m afraid it’s the people that made the project that are in the best position to help, sorry!
