How to Download or Clone Something From GitHub



If you use micro-controllers, play with Arduino or do other things that involve open-source software, you will most certainly have come across GitHub.

GitHub has become the place for people to share source code for all sorts of open-source applications ranging from simple single-file Arduino sketches to huge cloud applications consisting of thousands of files, but also other things like electronics design files or simply text documents.

At Elektor also we publish our code on #GitHub and tell people to download it from there. We then often get the question “How do I download something from GitHub?”

This seems like a silly question for experienced users, but it is true, you cannot just download the files you see listed in a repository.

In this video you will discover several ways of downloading something from GitHub.

  • Problem, the mobile version looks entirely different and does not seem to have a download button of any sort. I had to tell my browser to open as a desktop site and the button no longer says "clone or download" but is now labeled as "code."
