How can I clone a branch on a repository? Is there a way to only download that branch?
git clone -b 1.x https://github.com/getsentry/sentry-cli
Once the repository is downloaded, we can check the branch by running these commands:
cd sentry-cli git status
We should receive the following output:
On branch 1.x Your branch is up to date with 'origin/1.x'. nothing to commit, working tree clean
In the background,
git clone will fetch all the repository’s branches and then check out the one we’ve specified. If we only want to fetch one branch, we can add the flag
--single-branch to our
git clone command.
git clone -b 1.x https://github.com/getsentry/sentry-cli --single-branch
