Cloud Platform

Checking out a local copy of your code

To begin developing your Cloud Platform application, make a local copy of the application code by checking it out from its Cloud Platform code repository. Start in the location on your local computer where you want to create your repository.

Use the following Git command to clone the entire repository to your local directory:

git clone [code_repository]

where [code_repository] is the URL of the Cloud Platform code repository.

You can obtain the repository URL from either the Cloud Platform Environments page, or by using the following method to obtain the information from the Git information panel:

  1. Sign in to the Cloud Platform user interface, and select your application.

  2. Click Actions > View Git Information.

    In the Git Information panel, the repository URL is the value in the URL field.

  3. Click the Copy icon to copy the URL to your clipboard.

After you check out a copy of your code, you can make changes in the local code repository and then commit your code changes back to the remote code repository on Cloud Platform.
