Need Help with "1 Year Battery Stats" GitHub project
There is this post about someone logging their MacBook Air's battery for one year (verge post link: http://www.theverge.com/2013/8/16/4629368/1-year-of-battery-stats-for-2012-mba) and the project is located here:https://github.com/jradavenport/batlog
I believe the purpose of this program is to log your battery stats the moment you make it work (if not, please correct me)
The only problem is, I have no idea how to use GitHub, but given simple enough instructions I will probably understand how to use it.
What I think I know so far (the steps):
- Download ZIP file of project
- Place battest.sh shell script into some place e.g. Documents
- Run Terminal, then type crontab -e and hit enter (the code says $ crontab -e but I don't think I need to type $ again since there is already the $)
- Type *****/pathtorepo/battest.sh for example *****/Users/username/Documents/battest.sh
That's all I've got. What do I do next? What I see right now are rows of 'empty slots' I think which all have tildes (~) in them. Any help (in easy-to-understand words) would be great.
