Git Recipes on git section in learning modules

Hello,
I’m currently messing with the git recipes and while trying to clone a git remote repository as instructed i am having issues doing so. i have checked for errors and cant seem to figure out what i am doing wrong.

was told to "git clone git@example.com:user/repo local-repo-name

and was unsuccessful in cloning the repository into my local one.

Hey, @colie31 :wave:

git clone git@example.com:user/repo local-repo-name

That is just an “example” of what it would look like. It won’t work out of the box. If you want to clone something, you’ll have to make sure it exists.

What the computer is telling you in that response, in computer language, is “the link you provided me is not a git repository. I have no idea what you’re talking about, crazy developer.” I know. Computers are mean sometimes. :wink:

That being said … here is a working git clone command that you should be able to use.

git clone git@github.com:appacademy/cohort-resources.git

Hope that helps!

Keep up the good work! :star:

Oh :joy: that makes way more sense, thank you so much!
