Cloning repositories in git
Lets learn how to make copies of the repositories.
If you are working in a team, the following previous topics are quite important to understand because you almost always have to work with cloned repositories.
Step1:Go to your working directory
Go to the working directory and clone your hello repository.
cd .. pwd ls
NOTE: Now we are in the work directory.
$ cd .. $ pwd /Users/kwikl3arn/Documents/Presentations/gitdemo/auto $ ls hello
At this point you should be in your “working” directory. It should contain a single repository named “hello”.
Step2:Create a clone of the hello repository
Let’s create a clone of the repository.
git clone hello cloned_hello ls
$ git clone hello cloned_hello Cloning into cloned_hello... done. $ ls cloned_hello hello
Right now there should now be two repos in your working directory: the original “hello” repo and the cloned repository named “cloned_hello”.
