As part of the Git 2.19 release it was made available a feature that allows partial clones (https://github.com/git/git/blob/v2.19.0/Documentation/technical/partial-clone.txt). This is particularly useful for cloning specific subfolders instead of the whole repository.
I've tried to partially clone a repository hosted in GitHub but it seems that the filter parameter is not recognized.
Is this feature supported by GitHub already ?.
Thank you for being here! We'll pass your request for partial clones to our team for consideration. I can't promise if or when we'd add this but we'll make sure the request is in the right hands.
