Creating your very own MOOSE application is a cinch. Once you have installed the MOOSE framework, do the following:

1. Run the stork script

For your app name, consider the use of an acryonym. We prefer animal names for applications, but you are free to choose whatever name suits your needs. Then type the following into a terminal:

$MOOSE_DIR/scripts/stork.sh app YourAppName

where $MOOSE_DIR is the path to your MOOSE installation (e.g. /home/you/projects/moose or similar). This will create a directory named yourappname with everything you need to get started.

2. Build your app

cd yourappname
make -j4

You have successfully built your first MOOSE app. The application binary is a file called yourappname-opt.

3. Commit your changes

When you ran the stork.sh script, it printed out the following directions:

To store your changes on github:
    1. log in to your account
    2. Create a new repository named YourAppName
    3. in this terminal run the following commands:
         cd foopar
         git remote add origin https://github.com/YourGitHubUserName/YourAppName
         git commit -m "initial commit"
         git push -u origin master

Follow them to start tracking your project using version control with git.
