Get the source code

This page describes how to get the source code as a simple download or git clone. The information on the forking workflow with git has been moved to the Development workflows-section.

Option: Download the source code

To get the latest source code simply download it from repository website and extract the archive:

Getting the zip download URL from the GitLab web interface

You can also download and extract with the command line:

wget https://gitlab.opengeosys.org/ogs/ogs/-/archive/master/ogs-master.tar.gz
tar xf ogs-master.tar.gz

Option: Clone the source code repository with Git

First you need to get the clone URL:

Getting the git clone URL from the GitLab web interface

Then clone the repository with git:

git clone --filter=blob:limit=100 https://gitlab.opengeosys.org/ogs/ogs.git

The --filter=blob:limit=100k-parameter instructs git to only fetch files which are smaller than 100 Kilobyte. Larger files (e.g. benchmark files, images, PDFs) are fetched on-demand only. This happens automatically and is a replacement for the previous Git LFS tracked files. Requires at least git 2.22!
