Cloning the Cerebro repository from Github¶
From the Command Line¶
Create a new folder into which you want to clone the repository
Navigate into the folder you just created and then clone the contents of the Cerebro repository from Github
cd mylocalrepo/ git clone https://github.com/Karpova-Lab/cerebro.git .
From a Mac terminal it will look like this:
- Navigate to File -> New/Clone
https://github.com/Karpova-Lab/cerebro.gitas the source/URL
- The files now exist locally on your computer
