Opening a Repository in Tower

The first step is to choose a repository you want to work with. In Tower, the Repositories view allows you to:

(a) Open a repository you've already added to Tower.
(b) Add an existing repository from your local disk.
(c) Create a new repository, either in a project you already started or in a blank folder.
(d) Clone a remote repository from a remote location - either your own server or some service like GitHub, Bitbucket, or Beanstalk. This will effectively create a copy of this repository on your local computer you can work with.
