2) Upload the Files to the Server

You need Cyberduck or a similar sftp client to upload your work to the server.

  • To connect to the server enter in the necessary information (I will give this to you in class.)
  • Once you have logged into the server go to your folder and create a new folder to contain the setch. Give the folder the same name as your homework. If it is exercise 2 then name the directory "exercise_2."
  • Move the 3 files: processing.js, index.html, and some_name.pde into that folder.
  • You should now be able to see your sketch online at a url like the following: http://understandingnewmedia.com/p4a/f2012/user_name/exercise_2/ where user_name is the name of your folder and exercise_2 is the name of your exercise folder.

3) Link to the file on the wiki

Whew! Now let's create a link to your project on the wiki.

  • Log in to this website.
  • Go to "Exercises" in the right hand navigation
  • Under the proper exercise name click edit and add a link to your project.
  • All done!
