git + git lfs


The version control of the source files of the UltraZohm is done by git. Therefore, a git installation as well as git LFS is required:

  1. git installation

  2. git lfs installation

The homepage of git offers excellent documentation, tutorials, and videos. Another recommended tutorial is offered by Bitbucket. An understanding of git is mandatory for working with the UltraZohm and is assumed in the following sections!

A graphical git client can be used to simplify the usage of git. Sourcetree (git GUI) (Free, Windows and Mac) or GitKraken (paid for private repositories, free for students and research institutions/non-profit, Windows, Mac, Linux) is recommended.

Git Bash

If you are comfortable with git bash / CLI tool you can use it without the GUI client.
