I'm very new to git and I've been cloning a repo from BitBucket cloud in SourceTree to my local machine for roughly an hour now. My internet connection is average and so I'd usually chalk this up to a large repo (I don't have access to check the repo size in BitBucket but I'm cloning an organization's entire website, so I assume it's quite large).
However, the loading bar for the cloning process is full, yet the the output is stuck on "cloning into '<path to repo>'. . ."
Apparently there's no way to accurately check the progress of a clone, but this seems like an abnormally long time. Does this sound like the cloning is stuck or has encountered an error somewhere?
I tried both SSH and HTTPS, and they both seemed to take an eternity. Then I tried cloning with Git Bash (a text-command tool), and it showed progress was slow but steady.
The problem is that SourceTree's progress bar is completely useless, since it doesn't actually show progress. Additionally, the "Show full output" checkbox also does not show full output. So it's impossible to know if anything is happening. I found that using a command-line tool gives you a lot more information than SourceTree's GUI:
