You clone a repo that has a bunch of branches. But when you type
$ git branch in the terminal you don’t see the branches.
So you type
$ git branch -a in the terminal and now you see the remote branches but you can’t access them.
Let’s say one remote branch looks like this:
Then do this:
$ git checkout -b pages origin/pages
Then if you look inside using the terminal with
$ ls, you should see all the files that were inside that branch.
