git clone


I've used git bash so far and am now trying sourcetree.  To clone my repository via command line (git bash), I used the format

git clone

The repository is not on github or bitbucket.

How do I use these same clone parameters in sourcetree to clone that repository?

This widget could not be displayed.

In order for the SourceTree clone dialog (opens with CTRL+N) to accept the address as valid, it needs to start with the protocol, e.g.

but that's not a valid http url.

At the git reference -

it states ..

An alternative scp-like syntax may also be used with the ssh protocol:

  • [user@]host.xz:path/to/repo.git/

So it's a valid command line syntax. 

So sourcetree doesn't support that?

So it sounds like you want the ssh:// protocol instead of http:// or https://
