NetCDF Source Repositories Moved to GitHub

The netCDF team at the Unidata Program Center is happy to announce that the source code repositories for the netCDF C, Fortran, and C++ libraries are now publicly available on GitHub. The netCDF libraries join other Unidata projects including THREDDS, IDV, GEMPACK, and the LDM at the Unidata GitHub repository, which is located at:

GitHub is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git revision control system. The Unidata Program Center has been transitioning from the use of an in-house source code repository using the Subversion revision control system; the netCDF libraries are the final projects to make the switch.

Specifically, the netCDF repositories are located at:

Documentation, historic downloads and Windows binaries will continue to be made available through the netCDF portal hosted on the Unidata website:

Starting with our next release candidate, source downloads will be made available from GitHub:

To retrieve a working developer copy (which are not guaranteed to be stable) from GitHub, use one of the following git commands:

$ git clone http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c.git
$ git clone http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-fortran.git
$ git clone http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-cxx4.git

All current releases, revision history, and branches have been retained in the transition. The existing Subversion repository will persist for at least two months, but no changes will be made to it. Note also that netCDF source code and binary releases will still be available directly from the Unidata website.

Beyond bringing the netCDF projects in line with other Unidata distributions, the UPC netCDF development team hopes the transition to GitHub will be to improve collaboration with other developers in the Unidata community.

No user account is required to access the Unidata code repositories. For those unfamiliar with the Git revision control system, GitHub hosts a series of tutorials and screencasts. There are a number of free GUI front-ends for git, including the GitHub GUI software, and SourceTree for Windows and OSX.
