Pull from a repository

Let’s now pull the latest change (that we just pushed in the previous step) from the remote repository to our local repository (i.e., the "tutorial" directory).

Now that our remote repository is up to date with the changes from tutorial2. let’s pull the change and synchronize our initial repository directory, tutorial.

To execute a pull, use the git pull command. If you do not include the repository name, the pull will be executed on the repository under the alias origin.

$ git pull origin main
  * branch            main     -> FETCH_HEAD
