Okay, I'm not a programmer. How the heck do I edit the .gitignore file in step #4?
Can we possibly have some instructions that don't assume everyone who wants to use parsoid is a programmer?
First I installed and logged into the heroku CLI, then tried to download the git, but turns out I also need git, so I had to install and set up that. Then I get the git and I get to step 4 and there's no clue, not even a hint on how to do that it is asking. I searched everywhere in google for how to edit a file in heroku and came up with nothing usable, except mentions of its "ephemeral file system", which did not help me at all, no matter how I reworded it or used advanced google search modifiers.
So then I searched for how to download a file from heroku, and still nothing. There doesn't appear to be any kind of file manager in the heroku interface.. there has to be a way to open/edit files and edit them, or download them. I found references to installing vim but none of them worked. I'm very frustrated, please add some clear instructions for non-programmers to make this accessible to everyone who uses and administers a MediaWiki, and not just the programmers.
Mine is not the first comment regarding this. Others are having problems with the same thing. 14 steps when someone has no clue on how to use git or heroku is not a clear set of instructions at all. Please at least supply the necessary commands required to do the setup as other MediaWiki resources do.
