11.4. Cloning the Remote Application Repository

The remote application repository is not cloned to your local machine when an application is created with the Management Console. Therefore, it must be manually cloned so that the application code can be modified as required.
Clone the remote repository of an application into a local working directory with the following command:
$ rhc git-clone App_Name

Example 11.5. Cloning the Remote Application Repository

$ rhc git-clone racer
Cloning into 'racer'...
Your application Git repository has been cloned to '/home/apps/racer'
This command copies the template application files from the remote repository into the working directory so that the application code and files can be modified to suit your requirements.
