I'm using STS 2.8.1 release on win7. All I want to do is to clone a repository from github and by doing so create a new grails project from that.
I tried the following ways:
1. added the repo in E-git, right click -> import as general project -> project get created in project explorer -> right click on project configure->convert to grails project. At this point I got an error message saying that it doesn't have right to delete some files. (I ran STS in administration mode).
2. after cloning the repo, I create a new grails project in the folder that the cloning created. This way the new project wizard realizes that the folder is not empty, so it informs me it will import the project. Nevertheless in the next step it throws me an error saying it didn't find the .project file (which is not uploaded on github so of course he doesnt find it). I tried pasting a newly created project's files into it, but the import fails with some other error messages anyway
3. created a new grails project, right click -> team -> share -> grails, but at this point I couldn't pick any location that would make me proceed or if I did it threw errors again.
I tried to search online for a solution but I couldn't find. If anyone can point me to a good document / tutorial that could help too. I just need to get a github repository cloned to my sts so I can use it, it doesn't matter how it's done. Any help is greatly appreciated!
