How to Copy a Github Repository on Linux Using the Terminal

To copy (also known as “clone”) a GitHub repository on Linux using the terminal, use the following command:

git clone

Make sure to replace “USERNAME” with the actual username of the repository owner and “REPOSITORY” with the actual name of the repository. This will create a copy of the repository in a new directory with the same name as the repository. If you want to clone the repository in a directory with a different name, you can specify the directory name after the repository URL:


The git command is used to interact with git repositories and clone is used to create a local copy of a remote repository.

It’s that easy!
