1. Download and install git. Choose one of the following based on your operating system.
Mac OSX: git-scm.com/downloads
Linux (ubuntu): sudo apt-get install git
2. Find a repository you want to download off of github. For instance, the code for our last post is at https://github.com/godelsmarket/stock_database_updater.
3. Open up Git Bash if you're using Windows or Mac OSX. If you're using Linux you can use a standard terminal, because that's basically what Git Bash is.
4. Type the following:
git clone https://github.com/godelsmarket/stock_database_updater.git git_codeYou can change "git_code" to whatever name you'd like. It is the directory (and path) that will be holding the code.
5. You're done! You now have all the code in that directory for your use. Try downloading some other repositories.
In the future I'll show you how to create your own repository on Github and how to contribute to public repositories. It's really pretty simple.
