Final Minetest Git Repos
The ultimate Minetest git site

Welcome to the ultimate Minetest git site:

This site hosts 9,037 git repos as of the last gitea restart.

Most of the repos are for Mine­test. You'll find cur­rent mods here and mods that have dis­ap­pear­ed else­where.

We've con­vert­ed some non-git projects to git form so that you can git clone them. In fact, we offer git copies of *all* projects — both git and non-git — that were in the Troll­test ContentDB as of Christ­mas Day 2021. Even the ones that are no longer online else­where.

As a bonus, lost files pre­vious­ly host­ed on Media­Fire will be add­ed here in due course. There is no more com­plete Mine­test git col­lec­tion in exis­tence. This is the one and only one-stop MT git shop where you can clone until you drop.

There are FOSS repos of other types as well. You can store your own git repos here too. Go ahead, it's free.

It isn't pos­si­ble to for these repos to be lost due to rage­quit. For exam­ple, in 2020, the migdyn repos were de­leted or moved to an unknown loca­tion, but they con­tinue to exist at:

https://git.minetest.org/migdyn

And VanessaE has re­tired. A tower­ing figure in more than one re­spect, men­tal­ly ill but gifted, one of the true ori­gin­a­tors of the project. She'll be miss­ed. VanessaE de­le­ted her repos in 2021. But you can see them here at:

https://git.minetest.org/vanessae

The code in old Minetest repos is often exper­i­mental or obso­lete. So, many of these repos can't be used dir­ect­ly. However, the code is a use­ful refer­ence for mod­ders work­ing on new features.

Final Minetest is being redone. Links to the new code will be add­ed here in due course.

Search that doesn't leave you in the lurch:

Use the navbar at the top to nav­i­gate. Note: This site sup­ports full-text search of source files.

Hold the phone, how to clone:

To clone a repo to your hard disk, use CLI com­mands of the fol­low­ing form:

git clone https://git.minetest.org/Treer/hidden_doors/

Note: You can use http instead of https. However, if you do so, a redir­ection warn­ing mes­sage will be print­ed.

You can also download a ZIP file or TAR.GZ tarball from a repo's web page. Look for the type of but­ton shown below. It's a down­load button:

For example, click on the sample hidden_doors link pro­vided fur­ther up and look for the but­ton there.

Other resources:

* We've been informed that Perttu Asshola's Fall 2010 col­lec­tion of ultra-early MT bin­ar­ies is off­line. You can access a mirror at the link below:

https://minetest.org/moresites/c55.me/random/2010-10/old/

* A mirror of the MT forums from 2011 to 2017 is online at the link below. It includes files that are mis­sing from the troll­stream copy:

https://forum.minetest.org/

MT people index:

Some sample git accounts are linked below. These accounts are rel­e­vant to the Mine­test story or they have 20 or more repos.

A few people with­out repos are list­ed to pro­vide access to Mine­test pro­files or posts or other in­for­ma­tion.

Note: If you're using a smart­phone in por­trait mode, the list will be much too tall. Rotate the phone to land­scape mode.


Name issues:

* The GitHub "minetest" account is called "minetest" here.

"minetest" accounts from non-GitHub sites have had upstream site identifiers added. So, for example, the "minetest" account from "gitgud" is named "minetest-gitgud" here, "minetest" from NotABug is named "minetest-notabug", etc.

* "notabug" lets usernames end with a period but "gitea" doesn't per­mit this. So, we needed to change the user­name "y.st." locally to "y.st".

* Similarly, at Github, repo names can contain a period but "gitea" pro­hibits this. So, we needed to change the repo name "auth_rx.wiki" to "auth_rx_wiki".

Other issues:

* We're not certain that the following repo is valid:

The repo in question produced the following warning message on import:

warning in blob 81bb16b46edb67f6614169e42a6586b4eecc74db: gitmodulesParse: could not parse gitmodules blob

youtube-dl and similar tools:

This section was added as a response to the attempted takedown of youtube-dl in 2020. FWIW tartube is a GUI front-end for youtube-dl. Many of the other tools will have broken over time but the code may be useful for developers.
