Getting the project
The Drupal Console is a modular project using multiple repositories.
Languages are also managed into separated repositories:
You should fork the repositories that you want to contribute. For this task you can use the github GUI.
You need to define a directory where you will clone the repositories. i.e.
cd /Users/username/drupal-console-code git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:[your-github-user-here]/drupal-console.git git clone email@example.com:[your-github-user-here]/drupal-console-core.git git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:[your-github-user-here]/drupal-console-en.git
Now that you have cloned the repositories, you need to download dependencies using Composer.
cd /Users/username/drupal-console-code/[cloned-repository] composer install
