Sparse checkout with git and Sourcetree


I have a quite big git repo and my advisor wants to checkout only a few directories from it into his low-storage-macBook using source tree.

Does SourceTree implement sparcecheckout? How can I do it?

Or do we have to do it "by hand" (terminal) and than add the local repo to sourcetree?

The "problem" with the terminal solution is that he also needs to replicate the process in other machines.

Any success with this ?

Unfortunately no. After this and some other minor reasons, they forced a rollback to svn.
