The latest InterMine release is hosted on GitHub in the InterMine organization: https://github.com/intermine/intermine

Warning

We don’t recommend you download the InterMine code directly. The compiled JARs are available for you to use instead.

  1. Create an account at GitHub.

  2. Visit the InterMine GitHub repository at https://github.com/intermine/intermine and click on the “Fork” button in the top right corner of the page.

  3. Clone the forked InterMine repo to your local machine where git_username is the name of your GitHub account:

    $ git clone git@github.com:git_username/intermine.git
    
  4. Check out the latest stable InterMine release from the ‘’‘master’‘’ branch:

    $ cd intermine
    $ git checkout master
    
    1. The other branches are used by InterMine developers for testing.
    2. If you would like to use a specific release of InterMine, you can use one of our tags
  5. To keep track of the original InterMine repo, assign the original repo to a remote called “upstream”

    $ git remote add upstream git@github.com:intermine/intermine.git
    
  6. To pull changes in your local repository and merge them into your working files:

    $ git pull upstream
    

    You can also pull changes in your local repository without modifying your files

    $ git fetch upstream
    

    and merge any changes fetched into your working files

    $ git merge upstream/master
