Checking out a local copy of your code

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

Using Git

If you're using a Git repository, clone the entire repository to your local directory by using the following command:

git clone [code_repository]

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

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

  1. Sign in to the Acquia Cloud interface and select your application and environment.
  2. Click Application info.

    Click Application info to find the repository URL

  3. In the Application information panel, the repository URL is the value in the URL field. Click the clipboard icon to copy it 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 Acquia Cloud.
