What would you like to do?
Keeping a fork up to date

Note: I use ssh keys with git instead of https.

1. Clone your fork:

git clone

2. Add remote from original repository in your forked repository:

cd into/cloned/fork-repo
git remote add upstream
git fetch upstream

3. Updating your fork from original repo to keep up with their changes:

git pull upstream master

4. Updating your remote fork from original repo, on GitHub:

git push
