How to Clone the RDB?

So I download there 3:

  1. Docker Engine
  2. VS Code and the Dev Containers extension
  3. Git

How do I clone the RDB Alpha repo? Where is the rdf-alpha?

  1. Clone the RDB Alpha repo with git clone https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/rdb-alpha
  2. Open a terminal, navigate to the rdb-alpha directory, and open VSCode with code .
  3. Press Ctrl / Cmd + Shift + P and enter Dev Containers: Rebuild Container and Reopen in Container

i dont understand wht you meant by “where is rdb-alpha?!” but you’re already looking at it’s “github” repo!!

did you go through it’s readme file for more info?

  1. Clone the RDB Alpha repo with git clone https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/rdb-alpha
  2. Open a terminal, navigate to the rdb-alpha directory, and open VSCode with code .
  3. Press Ctrl / Cmd + Shift + P and enter Dev Containers: Rebuild Container and Reopen in Container
  4. A new VS Code window will open and begin building the Docker image. It will take several minutes to build the first time.
  5. Once the image is finished building, press Ctrl / Cmd + Shift + P and enter CodeRoad: Start to open CodeRoad
  6. In the CodeRoad window, click “Start New Tutorial”
  7. Enter the URL to the tutorial.json file of the project you want to start (ex: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/freeCodeCamp/learn-bash-by-building-a-boilerplate/main/tutorial.json)
  8. Click the “Start” button

I got stuck at step #2. I really dont know how to use the readme file. How do you do step #2?

Can I ping you one day to ask you to walk me through this? I open the Docker. Where can I find the rdb-alpha?

do you know how to use “git” or “github”? i would recommend going through this Cloning and forking repositories from GitHub Desktop - GitHub Docs happy reading :slight_smile:

Is this instructions for step #2?

yeah and more :slight_smile:

that article should tell you how and what to expect when comes to “cloning and forking”
