Running a fork edx-platform

tutor version 13.2.2
ubuntu 21.10
i have fork the edx-platform in my github account and commit some changes like replace the logo file there now after installing tutor now i want to fork a edx-platform of my github account running the below account
tutor images build openedx
–build-arg EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION=open-release/maple.3
it run successfully
tutor dev quickstart

No changes are made in the platform. Why the changes are not made ?

The arg EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION=open-release/maple.3 is equvilent to the branch name. Checking your fork I see your commits are made on master thus it should be EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION=master
Hence tutor/Dockerfile at 85a44213b7f819e457d0ddb515816246578ebb94 · overhangio/tutor · GitHub

You are trying to run a fork of master, this will not work without further adjustments to your Tutor environment.

Please take a look here for the “proper” way of running a fork: Configuration and customisation — Tutor documentation

You should start by creating a new branch from the open-release/maple.3, eg. Harshgaur14-dev, and set EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION to Harshgaur14-dev.

i have rename the branch as harshgaur14-dev now running,

tutor images build openedx --build-arg EDX_PLATFORM_REPOSITORY= --build-arg EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION=harshgaur14-dev


tutor images build openedx \
> --build-arg EDX_PLATFORM_VERSION=harshgaur14-dev

I don’t think that exactly what @uetuluk meant.

If you want to add commits on top of maple then you need to checkout a new branch from open-release/maple.3 and then add the commits. this means the commit history would be: last log from open-release/maple.3 then your commits.
Here is the steps: on your fork

  • git checkout open-release/maple.3
  • git checkout -b my-new-branh / your new branch is on top of maple.3
  • Add your comits and push as usual.
    Now because you have already did your commits on master you would need rebase them with the new branch, I don’t know how to that with git. Just make sure to check your commit history. your commits should come after this commit if you are using maple.3.

@ghassanmas Thank you for the additional details.

@Harshgaur14 I created a guide for running a fork. My command examples are for MacOS, but most of them should work for Ubuntu as well.

You should particularly check this section as to why you cannot simply use the master branch.
