If you are interested in creating your own connectors or modifying the samples, what you'll want to do is:
- Fork the webdataconnector repository so you have your own.
- Host for free using GitHub pages: https://pages.github.com/
- You'll then be able use some URL like yourgithubusername.github.io/webdataconnector/Examples/earthquakeUSGS.html from within Tableau to connect to that WDC.
If you are just interested in connecting to the samples without doing your own development, you can connect via our own GitHub pages hosting, for example: http://tableau.github.io/webdataconnector/Examples/html/earthquakeUSGS.html
That worked, thanks a lot.
