Looking for example git console commands


I am quite new to Github, and to use it efficiently, I should be able to enter some Git commands. But, trouble is I don’t find any example commands which I can understand and use.

An example: git clone username@host:/path/to/repository

How do I enter that command if I am DGrothe-PhD and my repository is https://github.com/DGrothe-PhD/latex-pdfpages-tile?

If you’re looking for the right repository URL on GitHub, you can get it using the “clone or download” button on the repository page (note the choice of SSH or HTTPS):


If the repository is hosted on another platform it depends on that platform, but most git hosters have something similar.

For learning more about git commands in general I highly recommend the Git Book (free, and available in many languages).
