Private & Personal Repositories

Once you've imported a GitHub repository, you will need to grant Replit permission so you can make changes tracked by your remote repository.

Let's start by creating a new Repl from scratch and opening the Version Control tab.

The next step is to click the Existing Git Repo button. You should get a popup asking to access your GitHub repositories. Simply authorize GitHub by clicking the link "Connect GitHub to import your private repos".

The final step is to install Replit on your personal GitHub account. Allow access to all repositories and hit Install & Authorize.

After you've finished this step, the popup should update and allow you to import all of your GitHub repositories! Choose one and hit Pull changes.

Your repository's code should now be successfully imported. Let's learn about how to use the GUI in the next tutorial!
