How to clone your own repo in github
Oct 19th, 2019
In a new folder you want the project to be in
git clone <your-template-repo-url>
Change the remote url of your project, you do not want to overwrite your template
git remote set-url origin https://github.com/<username>/<your-new-project-name>
Now create a new repo from the command line (press enter a couple timesgit init
git add README.md git commit -m "first commit" git remote add origin https://github.com/<username>/<your-new-project-name>.git git push -u origin maste
Even faster go to github and select create new repo button and give your project a name a description, after continuing you should get the code to create a new repo and paste that into your code editor.
Now you will have a cloned repo with the original untouched and the full original commit history.
