Game Development

>bin/lime.py create treehouse

Hi, I tried to 'google' the issue, however everyone figured it out somehow, and yet nobody wrote how. I am stuck on Coding Your First HTML5 Game with Randy Hoyt 19:54. Here, he is he typing bin/lime.py create treehouse and some html file is created. However, when I do it, nothing is happening. Even if i change and type the full path to bin/lime.py file starting from c:, it does not work. help,

Files that end if .py are Python scripts and you'll need some version of Python to run it. It comes standard with Linux/Mac systems but not Windows, where you'll need to download and install it yourself. The LimeJS package has instructions for installing on Windows PCs you'll need to follow to get it working.

Thanks for your reply. I have python running. I used exact same manual: brinka@sabinka MINGW64 /c/limejs $ python --version Python 2.7.11 brinka@sabinka MINGW64 /c/limejs $ python bin/lime.py --help brinka@sabinka MINGW64 /c/limejs $ bin/lime.py create treehouse brinka@sabinka MINGW64 /c/limejs $ However when I navigate to the folder, there is nothing there and nothing popups, etc.

Anyway, it works now. I made a redo from scratch using http://www.limejs.com/0-getting-started and https://github.com/digitalfruit/limejs. Still I don't know how to install and use Subversion or Git-SVN and I am not really sure, what are these for.
