What is the best way to install the latest version from GitHub into my project?

I want to check if one of the latest commits that is on GitHub will fix an issue that I have. Is there any way to have the GitHub repo as a dependency for my project? I tried several things, including building and linking it locally, but the whole monorepo structure makes it not work somehow.

Hi @Rowbow. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To install the latest version of a package directly from GitHub, you can use npm or yarn. However, the knowledge sources provided do not contain specific instructions for installing a package from a GitHub repository into a project using Refine. For general npm usage, you can install a package directly from a GitHub repository by using the following command:
npm install github:<username>/<repository>
npm install github:<username>/<repository>
Replace <username> with the GitHub username and <repository> with the name of the repository. This will install the latest commit on the default branch. If you want to install a specific commit, you can append the commit hash to the repository name:
npm install github:<username>/<repository>#<commit-hash>
npm install github:<username>/<repository>#<commit-hash>
Please note that this is a general approach and might not work depending on the structure of the repository and the package. If you're having issues with a monorepo structure, you might need to build the specific package you're interested in and then link it locally. For more specific instructions related to Refine, I would recommend checking the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/contributing) or reaching out to the Refine community for help. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To build Refine locally and use it as a dependency in your project, you can follow these steps: 1. Fork the Refine repository on GitHub and clone it to your local machine. You can do this by running the following command:
git clone <https://github.com/refinedev/refine.git>
git clone <https://github.com/refinedev/refine.git>
2. After you clone the repository, you need to install the dependencies. You can use your favorite package manager to do that. For example, with npm, you can run:
npm install
npm install
3. After installing the dependencies, you can build the project. The specific command to build the project is not mentioned in the provided knowledge sources. Usually, it's something like npm run build or yarn build, but you should check the scripts section in the package.json file of the project for the exact command. 4. Once you've built the project, you can use npm link to create a symbolic link from the global node_modules folder to the package in your local environment. This will allow you to use the local version of the package as if it was installed from npm. Run the following command in the root directory of the Refine project:
npm link
npm link
5. Now, navigate to your project's directory and run the following command to link the local version of Refine to your project:
npm link @refinedev/refine
npm link @refinedev/refine
Please note that these are general instructions and might need to be adjusted based on your specific setup and requirements. For more detailed instructions, you should refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/contributing) or reach out to the Refine community for help. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
