Private Repos / git urls
If you need to clone private repos, or just want to use git@ urls you'll need to add a deploy key to your git provider (ie github). If you want to be able to pull any repo from github, you'll have to add the key here Clone creates a fresh keypair when the plugin is first installed. The public part of the key can be accessed with.
# output with ssh email@example.com clone:key # save to clipboard with (mac only) ssh firstname.lastname@example.org clone:key | pbcopy # before cloning the repo, you'll need to add the remote to known hosts with ssh email@example.com clone:allow github.com
Cloning Branches and Tags
If you would like to build your app from another branch or tag your can pass that in as a third parameter ie.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org clone nodetest https://github.com/heroku/node-js-getting-started.git 2016
