Tested on Unity 2021.3 LTS and 2022.3 LTS on Windows 11.
You might be able to make it work on other systems, but it has not yet been tested.
How to install Crafty
First, download it from the Unity Store.
If you were given a private download link:
Click on the "Download" button.
Unzip the "Creatiel.zip" folder.
Take the unzipped "Creatiel" folder and place it under the "Assets" folder in your Unity project so the hierarchy looks like this:
Note that for Crafty to work, this Unity project needs to be considered as a Git project on your computer. If you are not sure what that means, no worries, ask the person responsible for Git in your team. You can send him these step by step instructions.

If you encounter a problem
First, try to reset Crafty by reseting the Unity Layout. Go into Window -> Layouts -> Choose a layout.
If that doesn't work, please write me an email and I'll be glad to have a look.
If someone in your team manages the Git repository or is knowledgeable with Git, another option is to ask him to check what is going on. Maybe the state of your local repository is in a weird state that Crafty cannot understand. Send him this page to help: https://crafty.creatiel.ca/technical_users
