I'd like to git clone the contents of a repository I have on GitHub. When I git clone (git@github:me/name.git...) I get a folder called name/ and inside name I have my contents... How do I get JUST the contents?

If the current directory is empty, you can do that with:

git clone git@github:me/name.git .

(Note: '.' at the end is used to specify the current directory.)  this also creates the .git directory in your current folder.

From documentation:

“It points out that cloning into an existing directory is only allowed if that directory is empty.”
