Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it's pretty small to download all the slackbuilds
besides, i guess you will need some of the dependencies as well
True, but that seems to be a complete waste of time, I don't buy everything in the supermarket if all I want is eggs. I already have the program installed as a test, but I prefer to install things as Slackware packages. I could create my own package, but I'm lazy and what is the point of re-inventing the wheel.
If it is impossible to download a single part of the github then that seems to me to be a very odd way to host a repository of slackbuilds. I'm glad Alien Bob and Robby Workman host their slackbuilds in a sensible way so that you can download the only the items that you need.
So is there a way to download just that folder or am I going to have to cut and paste?
if you click on the single files, then in the page that displays the file you will have a. "raw" link to the plain file that you can dowload.
other git interfaces, like cgit, can display also the raw folder tree, so it's easy to download all the files in a folder.
