Does anyone have an install guide for a WORKING development Branch

I am wanting to create at least one app. The only problem is that right now there is nothing that works. Right now the develop branch on both centos 7 and linux 16 is dead. Both say something to the fact that the connection is reset or you cant install it at all.

So does anyone know of a slightly dated development branch or a os to use to create apps with.

If you can share the error traceback surely people can help you out.
