Retrieving a single file from a Git repo it’s not possible …yet. However, there are few workarounds that could get the job done.
git archive Download a single file (
README.md in this case) from a remote in current directory:
git archive --remote=[email protected]:foo/bar.git HEAD README.md | tar -x
wget / curl You can always use CLI tools such as
curl to download the blob file.
wget <URL> -O testfile curl <URL> > testfile
