Hi there,

If you don’t own that repository, the best thing to do is to just fork it so that you would have a copy of that repository under your GitHub account.

To learn more about forks, Git, and GitHub in general, I could suggest checking out this tutorial here:

Also, here is an open-source eBook that might be helpful:

Hope that this helps!

Heya @1f70c371f9c047c5a04b252f165d88,

Check the following docs that explain how you can use a public repository in your App Platform:

You can change your app’s repository by updating the app’s spec. You cannot change the app’s repository using the control panel, at this time. To change the app’s repository, the new repository must be discoverable and not in use by another app on App Platform.
