GitHub "Clone in Desktop"

Each repository on github.com has a "Clone in Desktop" button in the right sidebar. You can use this button to have the repository cloned in Tower - after following these instructions:

  1. In Tower's Preferences, on the "Integration" tab, make sure that you have "Open repositories from github.com" set to the Tower app
  2. To make those links appear at all in your browser, you have two options:
    (a) Either download & install the GitHub for Mac app and sign in with your GitHub account (in the app's Preferences dialog).
    (b) Alternatively, you can install a free browser extension that provides the "Clone in Desktop" links: github.com/gdelmas/GithubTower
