To clone your repository in your local development environment:
- Install at least one Git tool . You can find a selection of recommended tools on our Git software tools page

- The Command prompt will open in the repository root folder.
- Run the following command, substituting your URL copied from your forks web page. Add a name for your local repository too.
$ git clone [Insert your Github URL here] myLocalRepositoryName Example : $ git clone <a href="https://github.com/Warewolf-/Warewolf-.git">https://github.com/Warewolf-/Warewolf-.git</a> Warewolf

If you are part of a development team who want to work on your Warewolf fork, you can set up the development team on GitHub and all contribute to your fork.
