Working on two projects at once

I want to work on two projects at once. I created two projects in the sourcetree site.  How can I would on both of these projects together but independitly at once, so I dont have to switch branches back and forth, and can make check ins with one, while still swapping branches, but the other project is still checked out?

If I've undertstood correctly you want to be able to work on 2 branches from the same repository?

You have a couple of options, you can clone the same repository twice and checkout the different branches in the different clones.

Alternatively if you are using Git you can make use of Git Worktrees, this means you clone your repository once, but you can checkout more than one branch at a time.

Two seperate projects, that are completley different from each other, but work together.
