Fork a Repo on Github.com
When you create a copy of a repo that was orginally created by someone else it's called a fork. It's a remote copy, meaning the files are stored on GitHub.com. It also stays linked to the original repo that you copied it from.
- If you're not already there, go to GitHub.com/diy and click on the repo open-sourcerer.
- Near the top right, click
Fork. Check out that animation! This means we're creating a linked copy of the code onto our account.
