Get the Remote Branch

To fetch and checkout a remote branch called stage from a remote repository (usually called origin), you can use the following Git commands:

  1. First, fetch the remote branch:
git fetch origin stage
  1. Then, create a local branch and check it out:
git checkout -b stage origin/stage

This command creates a new local branch called stage, sets it to track the remote branch origin/stage, and checks it out.

Alternatively, if you are using Git version 1.6.6 or newer, you can use the following shorter command:

git checkout --track origin/stage

This command will automatically create a local branch with the same name as the remote branch (stage), set it to track the remote branch, and check it out.
