Hello everyone, I am a beginner in coding and I was looking into the eye lock tutorial attached. I wanted to implement the AVS Server into my project but Im struggling to configure it. I was wondering if anyone can further explain the local avs server configuration information in this tutorial. please

What exactly are you struggling with? That's a fairly large and complicated project to describe in its entirety. Break it into small chunks and focus on one thing at a time.

Im struggling with cloning the repository for the AVS sample app. when I put the code into the terminal. it asks for a username and password but I don't think that should be so. The section Im struggling with is where it says Local AVS Server Configuration(the heading is in bold).

In order to clone from GitHub you need to setup an account, install Git, and then provide your credentials the first time you try remote cloning. TBH you can probably just download the zip using your browser. You can even do it on your PC, put the zip on a thumb drive and load it onto your RPi like that...

Did you put in your credentials when it asked for them?

question does this need to be coded on my raspberry pi or do I need to do it via my terminal on my Mac?

Do this instead in your terminal:
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/grahamhoyes/eyeLock2.git eyeLock

Now the second step is giving me problems. for some reason I can run the install script $ alexa-avs-sample-app/automated_install.sh
