When working in development we spend a lot of cloning packages, installing packages and opening visual studio code. My usual workflow goes like the following:
- git clone
- cd project
- code .
- yarn dev
- development time!
When one of my discord members cryptus_neoxys🇮🇳 told me about a project he had been working on called git-ultimate-cloner , it allowed you to clone, install packages and open visual studio code (or your favorite ide) in a single command. It hit 100k downloads this week!
How does it work?
First you install the package globally
npm i -g git-ultimate-cloner and then you can use the following command:
quick clone <repository-url>
This will then do all of this work flow, allowing you to get working quickly without having to do it all manually.
Using a default directory
I develop everything in the same directory named development, git-ultimate-cloner allows you to set a default directory. Even if you open in your root directory it will always clone to that directory for example:
quick --set-folder default "C:\development\development"
Then if you need a one off directory you can do the following:
quick clone <repo-link> --folder current
You should 100% check this out, it’s one of my favorite new projects and I am super proud of the discord member who created this project.
