Regarding the distribution on GitHub of NTK project files on MacOS. 
Mark Manson explains the procedure in his DashBoard GitHub. 

You need to put your files together, preferably (!) using a Mac with MacOS other than MacOSX (or via an emulator, BasiliskII or SheepShaver).
Then put everything about your project in a folder (if it is not already the case). 
Once this is done in MacOS "classic", your folder must be accessible to MacOSX (at least until version 10.11.6, I haven't tested beyond that).
In MacOSX you place yourself in the folder with your favorite terminal. And split the files with the command 

> SplitForks .

This will split the files into separate files and resources, and you put it all on Github, preferably on the command line so that no file is left out since all resource names start with a . (the ones that make them invisible to the MacOSX interface). But it also works with GitHub Desktop, if you're uncomfortable with Github commands.

Mark explains this in better English than I do here:
