SpecFlow Sources

To get the latest version of the SpecFlow sources do the following:

  1. Fork github/techtalk/specflow:

    Forking SpecFlow

    This brings you directly to your fork on your github page:

    Forked SpecFlow

  2. Clone your fork of the SpecFlow repository

    The easiest way to accomplish this might be to use the built in support for git repositories (Visual Studio 2012 and 2013).

    First, connect to the team project:

    Connecting to Team Project in Visual Studio 2013

    Now you need the url of the repository to clone. That’s easiest by copying it directly from the clone url textbox on the repository’s site:

    HTTPS clone URL on GitHub

    Back in Visual Studio, click the clone button, paste the url and change the local path if necessary:

    For a several 100MB sized repository as SpecFlow is, it’s nice to have informative progress info:

    Of course you can use the git command line or your preferred UI tool such as Git Extensions or GitHub for Windows for this procedure as well.
