Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Your first MODO kit on GitHub

Your first MODO kit on GitHub

Making a MODO kit is easy with Good Kitty. Use it.

Sharing your kits is easy with GitHub. Use it, too.

We all have custom hotkeys and preferences we want to keep, and it's annoying to
set them up over and over on multiple machines or after a preferences reset.

You can create your own MODO kit with all your hotkeys and preferences using the free, 
open-source good_kitty kit from GitHub.

Good Kitty

In MODO, use System > Open User Configs Folder. Download Good Kitty, unzip it. Put the whole folder into the Configs folder. Quit and restart MODO.

Name your kit, and add an internal name using letters/numbers/underscores only. Uncheck everything except "Extract Input Remapping" and "Extract Preferences". Hit OK, Yes, and OK.

The new kit folder will open, but it's not finished yet. To finish it, launch MODO.

Your new kit is now working. You can use it as is.


To sync your work between machines or share it with others, Github is the best choice.
Anyone can do it, you don't need to be a programmer to use GitHub.

Create a free GitHub account and log in. Search for "GitHub GUI" and download the Github app for Mac or Windows.

In the GitHub Desktop app, click the + sign at the top left > Add > and browse to your kit.

Name and commit your changes and click Publish. The repository name should be the same as
your kit name, and if you want to share your kit with others, un-check the "private" box.
You can change this setting later.

Right-click the repository name and View on Github

Your kit is now on GitHub and can be synced between machines using the GitHub desktop app. If the repository is not private, others can also download and sync the kit to their machines.

Clean Up and Sync

Our kit contains lots of unnecessary stuff. Remove everything except the index,
input remapping, and preferences files. Name and commit the changes, then click sync.

On Github, click Add Readme, and type a simple description, instructions, or other
information you want users to know. Use a hash for titles and hyphens for lists.
Name and commit your changes.

Git is an incredibly powerful tool, but it doesn't have to be complicated. Get after it.
