Connect to the Repository

Cloning a repository

Git’s advantage as a distributed source control system is its ability to clone a copy of the repository locally. Having a local copy of the repository gives you complete autonomy.

Use the git clone command to clone the repository you created. The clone command requires the <GitHub clone URL>.

Clone the repository by following these steps:

  1. Click Clone or Download, then click the copy or clipboard button.
