SOLVED: How to download multiple files from GitHub for Project 2?

Forums > 100 Days of SwiftUI

I am starting project 2 and there are two project 2 folders on git hub project2-files and project2. Project 2 files have quite a few files in them and it sucks to have to download them one by one. How do I download multiple files and folders as well?

To download multiple files from a GitHub repository for Project 2, you have a few options:

Option 1: Download as a ZIP file

Visit the GitHub repository page where the files are located. Click on the green "Code" button located on the right side of the page. In the dropdown menu, select "Download ZIP." The repository will be downloaded as a ZIP file containing all the files and folders. Extract the ZIP file to access the files on your local machine. Option 2: Clone the repository using Git

Install Git on your computer if you haven't already. Open your terminal or command prompt. Navigate to the directory where you want to store the downloaded files. On the repository page in GitHub, click on the green "Code" button. Copy the URL provided (e.g., https://github.com/username/repository.git). In your terminal or command prompt, enter the following command: bash Copy code git clone <repository_url> Replace <repository_url> with the URL you copied. Press Enter to execute the command. Git will clone the entire repository, including all files and folders, into the current directory. Option 3: Use Git's sparse checkout (for specific files or folders)

Install Git on your computer if you haven't already. Open your terminal or command prompt. Navigate to the directory where you want to store the downloaded files. On the repository page in GitHub, click on the green "Code" button. Copy the URL provided (e.g., https://github.com/username/repository.git). In your terminal or command prompt, enter the following commands: csharp Copy code git init git remote add origin <repository_url> git config core.sparsecheckout true Replace <repository_url> with the URL you copied. Create a file called .git/info/sparse-checkout in the repository's root directory. Open the .git/info/sparse-checkout file and list the specific files or folders you want to download, each on a separate line. Save the file. Run the following command to update the repository and download download apk for free only the specified files or folders: Copy code git pull origin master Choose the option that best suits your needs and follow the instructions to download the desired files from the GitHub repository for Project 2.
