Steps to follow

1. Fork it 🍴

You can get your own fork/copy of FreeCodeCamp wiki by using the Fork button or clicking this.

Fork Button

2. Clone it 👥

Once you have forked the wiki repository in Github, you need to clone/download it to local machine with…

$ git clone https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/wiki.git

this makes a local copy in your machine.

3. Set it up 🆙

Run the following commands to see that your local copy has a reference to your forked remote repository in Github :octocat:

$ git remote -v
origin  https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/wiki.git (fetch)
origin  https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/wiki.git (push)

Magic ✨ ✨ 👀
Now lets add a reference to the original FreeCodeCamp wiki repository with…

$ git remote add upstream https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/wiki.git

this adds a new remote named upstream.

You may see the changes with…

$ git remote -v
origin    https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/wiki.git (fetch)
origin    https://github.com/YOUR_USERNAME/wiki.git (push)
upstream  https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/wiki.git (fetch)
upstream  https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/wiki.git (push)

4. Sync it ♻

Always keep your local copy of repository updated with the original repository.
Before making any changes and/or in an appropriate interval, run the following commands carefully to update your local repository.

# fetch all remote repos and delete any deleted remote branches
$ git fetch --all --prune

# switch to `master` branch
$ git checkout master

# reset local `master` branch to match `upstream` repo's `master` branch
$ git reset --hard upstream/master

# push changes to your forked wiki repo
$ git push origin master
