That works better, thanks. It also helps if you have the ssl plugin working, as I discovered while trying this out on my iMac instead of the Pi. So that means I have to see if it even gets built on a Pi…

So far (just for the record) this is showing promise -
fetch the data with 
	'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/user/repo/branch/myimportant.zip' asUrl retrieveContents
then extract with
	UIManager default informUserDuring: [:bar| (ZipArchive new readFrom: (ReadStream on: content asByteArray)) extractAllTo: (FileDirectory default) informing: bar].
where ‘content’ is the content from the MIMEDocument you get back. The files are all extracted ok. 

Next step is to see how I can ‘load’ each file more directly.
