How can I clone a Git repository into a specific folder?

The Solution

The git clone command takes an optional second argument specifying the directory to clone into. For example, the following command will clone a repository named monorepo into a folder named acme-monorepo:

Click to Copy
git clone acme-monorepo

Alternatively, we can create the folder acme-monorepo and use the Bash . operator to clone the repository into the current directory, as below:

Click to Copy
mkdir acme-monorepo cd acme-monorepo git clone .
