Should i fork before git clone?

Hello,
I am working on freecodecamp API projects and i would want to know if i should fork the github repo before cloning or not.
thanks

Hello there,

This depends on if you plan on pushing changes to a personal version on GitHub or not.

If you want a local copy of the files, and nothing else, then clone.
If you want to save your changes on GitHub, then fork the repo into your account, and then clone for local development.

Hope this clarifies
