To clone a remote git repository, enter the following into the terminal:

Note: Make sure you are in a root folder e.g. webdev instead of a project specific folder.

git clone <remote_repo>
cd <remote_repo>

List your branches using these commands:

git branch // Lists local branches
git branch -a // Lists local and remote branches

To checkout a remote branch locally:

If a remote branch exists with the name of the branch you checked out, it will automatically track the remote branch.

git checkout <branch>

Here is an example of fetching the remote master branch from FreeCodeCamp:

git clone https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/FreeCodeCamp.git
cd FreeCodeCamp
git checkout master
