How to get an existing app’s sources
First make sure, all the needed prerequisites are met.
Get app sources
Clone the project to the
~/.nrfconnect-apps/local directory. For example, if
you want to work on the
RSSI Viewer, do
this in a terminal on Linux/macOS or Git bash on Windows:
git clone https://github.com/NordicSemiconductor/pc-nrfconnect-rssi
If you prefer it, you can also create the project directory anywhere else and
create a symbolic link from
~/.nrfconnect-apps/local to the project directory.
You now have everything set up for everyday app development, so read up about that.
