How To Git Clone a Repository Into the Algorithm Development Environment (ADE)¶
This example walks through cloning a repository into the ADE. Cloning a repository allows you to open, edit, and run files contained within the cloned repository. In this example, we look at cloning the “MAAP-Project/maap-documentation” Git repository, so that you are able to experiment with the code examples contained within this user documentation.
When inside of a workspace, navigate to Git tab at the top of the Jupyter window. Click it to see the option to Clone.
We can also access the “Clone a repo” dialogue box by selecting the File Browser tab on the JupyterLab sidebar and using the Git Clone button located at the top of the sidebar. The “Clone a repo” dialogue box prompts you to enter the URI of the repository you wish to clone. For this example we enter ” https://github.com/MAAP-Project/maap-documentation.git “. This can be found by visiting the GitHub site for the “MAAP-Project/maap-documentation” Git repository and clicking the Code button. Then press the CLONE button to clone the repository into the ADE.
With the File Browser tab on the JupyterLab sidebar selected, a folder named “maap-documentation” should now appear under the “projects” directory. Folders for the various sections of the guide can be found in the “docs/source/” directory.
To open the IPython Notebook for an example, go to a section directory and double-click on appropriate “.ipynb” file. For more information about the using Git in Jupyterlab, see https://github.com/jupyterlab/jupyterlab-git .
