Now that Xcode is installed and ready to go, the next step is to get the latest stable version of Sparrow. Go to the official Sparrow homepage at http://sparrow-framework.org or http://gamua.com/sparrow/.
The latest Sparrow version—at the time of writing this book—is 2.0.1. The download page will look like the following screenshot:
The Sparrow GitHub repository is located at https://github.com/Gamua/Sparrow-Framework/, where more information on the procedure can be found. Typically, Git commands are entered in the terminal:
git clone https://github.com/Gamua/Sparrow-Framework
This will take a while to download; the current progress is being shown in the terminal. After the download is complete, you will have the latest development version. Only use this version if you want to test a specific feature of Sparrow before its release or if you are feeling adventurous.
Never use this version for production code in games about to be released on Apple's App Store.
To get the latest stable version of Sparrow, check out the stable tag:
git checkout tags/v2.0.1
