Git clone without subdirectory

2 May 2013

When you clone a GIT repository, by default it creates a new sub-folder by the name of your repository. This is highly annoing when you're deploying a repo to your webserver. Instead, you want your repo to exist in a specified folder.

To do this, just take note of the third option of the git clone command:

Syntax: git clone [git url] [local folder]
git clone https://github.com/username/repo.git .

This command will clone said repository into your current folder.
