GH-REPO-CLONE(1) GitHub CLI manual GH-REPO-CLONE(1)

NAME

gh-repo-clone - Clone a repository locally

SYNOPSIS

gh repo clone <repository> [<directory>] [-- <gitflags>...]

DESCRIPTION

Clone a GitHub repository locally. Pass additional git clone flags by listing them after --.

If the OWNER/ portion of the OWNER/REPO repository argument is omitted, it defaults to the name of the authenticating user.

If the repository is a fork, its parent repository will be added as an additional git remote called upstream. The remote name can be configured using --upstream-remote-name. The --upstream-remote-name option supports an @owner value which will name the remote after the owner of the parent repository.

If the repository is a fork, its parent repository will be set as the default remote repository.

OPTIONS
