Github help

I need a script that will clone the filename.js project from GitHub into a directory called 'wwt-rocks'. If the directory already exists, I need to delete it first.  

Use any language you want: Bash, Zsh, Ruby, Groovy, Python, Node.js, Puppet…doesn't matter

Is this what you want?
I don't know whether you want to have multiple wwt-rocks directory
in different places of your file system or whether you
want to have only one. In this case I'd use an ABSOLUTE path name for


# configuration:
local_dir="wwt-rocks "

test -d "$local_dir" && rm -rf "$local_dir"
git clone "$git_url"

Open in new window
