Git repositories

This section explains Git repository integration in Datalore. The main benefit of cloning Git repositories to Datalore is that you gain access to custom Python modules, scripts, or functions, which you can then edit collaboratively in Datalore.

Purposes and methods compared

Git repositories as workspace resources

Add a Git repository to your workspace if you want to use it as a Python library with a setup.py file in it. Once added to a selected workspace, this repository can be installed into any notebook residing in that workspace. Alternatively, you may want to install it directly into the environment of a selected notebook. In this case, it will be automatically added to the resources of the respective workspaces.

Git repositories as attached files

We recommend using Terminal for Git repositories that you want to use as notebook or workspace attached files. While using the Environment tool also allows you to access the contents of the repository, it is with Terminal that you can choose the convenient location for these files and access them either as workspace ot notebook attachments.
