Pull specific branch from git
I have a repo in bitbucket, and i am using git.
So my branches are
master develop_one develop_two
When i use git clone email@example.com:project/project.git, i am getting only the master branch code, but i need to clone/pull only develop_one branch, so how to clone/pull only develop_one branch code ?
Note: The other branches(develop_one, develop_two) are not merged in to master, and dont want to merge until the functionality has been completed actually, so want to get/clone/pull only a specific branch code
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:project/project.git -b develop_one --single-branch
For already cloned repos use:
git fetch git checkout develop_one # Or more specific: git checkout --track -b develop_one
This will track the develop_one branch from the remote.
Also, to add to @tomrbrujin 's answer, you can specify the name of the local destination directory in the clone command like this:
git clone https://github.com/example/example1.git -b branch_name --single-branch local_name
The final arg passed, local_name would create and name the local copy of the cloned remote directory "local_name."
Otherwise, the local directory name will only reflect the repo name, which here would be: example
