Hi
I have a git working repository in one of my droplets. I would like to open that repo from my laptop using a gui client like gitextensions. How do I go about the same?
Thanks in advance
Regards Ganesh

Hey friend,

Are you running a git server on the droplet? If so, you should be able to point it to the git URL and go that route. If you just have the repo cloned on the droplet and want to work from it there, I'd instead encourage you to clone it locally and push it to your repo, then have the droplet pull a new copy as desired.
