git clone specific list of branches
I want to clone a list of branches from remote repo. What is the best way to do that without fetching everything? I saw solutions for cloning one specific branch but I need multiple branches. Thank you.
Edit: I ended up using following command to create a bundle and then using it for my purposes:
git bundle create ../BUNDLE.bundle branch1 branch2 refs/notes
And then using this bundle for my purposes.
You start with one branch:
git clone --branch first URL localrepo
and then fetch all the rest:
cd localrepo for branch in second third etc; do git fetch origin $branch:$branch done
Or without loop
git fetch origin second:second third:third
