Git Clone is a command used to make a copy of a Git repository to your local drive. It creates a new directory and creates a clone of the repository on the local drive. In the example below, a clone of an existing repository from Github is placed on the local computer. You initiate a clone by typing the following command on the Terminal.
// old way. does not work anymore. git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:username/Project.git // new way. use this from this point on. git clone https://github.com/username/Project
