At the time of writing this blogpost you'd need to download 1.54Gb of code if you'd like to get started with a PR. That's a lot.
Git with Depth
There's a fix though. Instead of using:
You can use:
git clone --depth <depth> -b <branch> <repo_url>
This way you can limit what you'll download. You can point to a main branch and specify how deep you'd like to clone. You likely won't need all the changes to be on disk so this can be a huge timesaver!
