Only download subdirectory from github repository

 “You cannot with Git  as it operates on a whole-repository basis.”

If you have svn, you can use svn export to do this:

svn export https://github.com/foobar/Test/trunk/foo 

Notice the URL format:

  • The base URL is https://github.com/
  • USERNAME/PROJECTNAME without .git
  • /trunk appended at the end
