Moving Your Mortar Project to Your Own GitHub Account

The best way to preserve your project is to create a copy of your repository in your own GitHub account.

To move your project to your own GitHub account follow these instructions for Importing a Git repository using the command line.


Clone Your Repo Locally

If you don't want to move your project to a different GitHub account, you can clone your repo locally to preserve it. To clone your repo locally, use the SSH or HTTPS clone url found on the right hand side of your GitHub project page and do:

git clone YOUR_CLONE_URL

All of your repository history, tags, and branches will be preserved in your cloned version of the repository.


Export Your Project's Code

You can use the "Download Zip" button on the main GitHub page for your project to download a compressed copy of your current code. However, this copy will not contain any of your commit history or code that is in other branches.
