Create sandbox from fork (For new comer)

Please follow the steps below in order to update your sandbox to work with forked edx-platform repository:

  • Create sandbox in usual way
  • SSH into your sandbox – ssh <your-github-username>@<sandbox-dns>
  • sudo rm -rf /edx/app/edxapp/edx-platform – to change the remote you need to remove the existing edx-platform checkout
  • Add the following line to /edx/app/edx_ansible/server-vars.yml - edx_platform_repo: "<user>/edx-platform.git"
  • sudo /edx/bin/update edx-platform <branch-name> - update edx-platform using the forked repo
