Import Github project of the Webserver WIZ550web to Eclipse

In the load-two articles I Showed how to install the toolchain and how to flash the binary with stm32flash. This article will show how to import the project into eclipse with git Directly from Github. Git is a very powerful version managment system. GitHub is a platform implementing a git server with more nice tools for collaborating. If you do not know it yet, give it a try – you will be amazed how easy collaborative work will be.

So first we have to decide Which repository we will use. The primary repository can be found under But at the time of writing this article there were some small errors as the case of some letters in file names were different. So on this case sensitve operating systems lead to compile errors. To circumvent this I forked the project and you can therefore clone my repository

In case you want to publish your work so to others it would be even better to fork one of the mentioned repositories into your own github account. Then you can push your changes to your own github repository. You should give it a try, it’s very easy – and as public repositories are free, it does not even cost you money.

In the Following I’ll clone my own repsository I forked in github before.

First start eclipse and just go to the “File” menu and choose “Import …”. There you have to select “Git” / “Projects from Git”. In the next dialog you have to choose “Clone URI”.

In the next dialog enter the URI – host and repository path will be filled out automatically. In case you forked the repository to your own github account, you should enter your username and password into this dialog to be able to push your changes later.

The remaining steps are of basically “Next”, “Next”…, and “Finish”
