Tin Library is one of several open-source projects in a Subversion repository hosted by Adobe. Subversion is an open-source revision control system used for many open-source projects. If you haven't used it before, please see the official documentation .
There are two ways to access the repository. You can use any web browser to see the structure of the project and view the latest version of each file. However, you must use a Subversion client to perform more complex operations such as reviewing the commit log, looking at older revisions or diffs, or checking out your own working copy to build and test.
To browse the Tin project, go to https://sourceforge.net/adobe/tintin/code/37/tree/tin/ . The project structure is flat in this initial release.
To get your own working copy of the source code, you'll need a Subversion client. A client will also let you see the repository structure, look at the revision history of any file or directory, diff two versions of a file, etc.
The Adobe team has had good experience with TortoiseSVN on Windows and SmartSVN on Macintosh, both of which are GUI clients. (This is not an official endorsement of these products by Adobe.) Of course, you can use whatever client you prefer, including Subversion's official command-line tool svn . We'll assume you're using svn in our instructions.
You can get the Subversion installer, which includes svn , here:
After installing svn using the Windows installer, you should be able to execute svn from any directory because it will be found on your PATH .
On Macintosh, test the installation by opening Terminal and executing:
If you get svn: command not found , then you'll need to add the /usr/local/bin directory onto your PATH , since this is where svn lives. Assuming you're using the default bash shell in Terminal, you can do this by putting the following lines into a ~/.bash_profile file:
PATH="/usr/local/bin:$PATH" export PATH
Otherwise, you'll have to invoke svn as /usr/local/bin/svn .
When you access the repository with a Subversion client, the Tin project is at the URL https://sourceforge.net/adobe/tintin/code/37/tree/tin/.
To get the entire source code for the project, do a "checkout" from this URL into a local directory on your machine. Using the command-line client, you would execute
svn checkout https://sourceforge.net/adobe/tintin/code/37/tree/tin/ <local-directory>
The source provided does not include projects for building. It is source only, meant to be added into your own project.
Presently we have no process in place for modifying Tin. Please contact us if you will be making changes. Thanks!
