Cloning a repository

Note: The process varies depending on your choice of code editor / IDE, so refer to one of the following guides:

The following will use the SeasonalBot repository as an example, but the steps are the same for all other repositories. You should have already retrieved your fork's Git URL as described in Creating a Fork.


Cloning with PyCharm

  1. Load up PyCharm and click Check out from Version Control, then Git.
    pycharm_checkout
  2. Enter the URL of your forked repository, then test it with Test.
    pycharm_test_clone
  3. Change the directory if you desire and click Clone.

Cloning with the command line

  1. Clone your forked repository using git clone followed by your fork's Git URL. Then, change your working directory to the repository.
$ git clone https://github.com/<your username>/seasonalbot
...
$ cd seasonalbot
