Linking a GitHub repo

You can streamline setting up your project by linking a GitHub repo to your project on the ActiveState Platform. When you state activate your Platform Project, the state tool will automatically clone the linked GitHub repo into your virtual environment.

Go to your Project Settings page. Enter the URL to your GitHub repo in the field and save your changes.

You can now state activate your project from the command line and your GitHub repo will be automatically cloned into your working folder.


To ensure that your runtime and project remain linked, commit the activestate.yaml file to your GitHub repo after activating the project.
