Download a single folder or directory from a GitHub repo

(Priyankamakke) #1

How can I download only a specific folder or directory from a remote Git repo hosted on GitHub?

Say the example GitHub repo lives here:

git@github.com:foobar/Test.git

Its directory structure:

Test/
    foo/ 
       a.py
       b.py
    bar/
       c.py
       d.py

I want to download only the foo folder and not clone the whole Test project.
