- git clone https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware.git
- cd qmk_firmware
+ git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware.git
+ cd qmk_firmware
?> If you already know [how to use GitHub](getting_started_github.md), we recommend that you create and clone your own fork instead. If you don't know what that means, you can safely ignore this message.
