How to clone a single branch from remote git repository

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to clone a single branch from a remote git instead of cloning all branches.

Cloning specific branch

To clone a specific branch we can use the git clone command followed by the -b flag and branch name, repository URL.

git clone -b <branch-name> <repo-url>

General usage example:

git clone -b new https://github.com/saigowthamr/gatsbyblog-starter.git

In the above code, we are cloning a specific branch called new.
