Download A Git Repo
This is a bit of a hack, but to download a git repo into your current directory you can do:
git init git remote add origin https://github.com/alanwsmith/ideas.alanwsmith.com git fetch git checkout main rm -rf .git
The reason you might want to use this over
git clone is because you can do it in your current directory. The
git clone command clones the repo down into a sub directory.
