Sometime you clone starter projects, libraries, or plugins to help you get started on a new project or POC.
Perhaps you are using
git clone to get your project on a remote server.
When you clone a project what you also get is all the previous states of that repository at each commit. This can add up fast and take a good chunk of your hard drive space as well as take long to download and decompress.
To solve this you can clone a shallow copy of the repository by using the
depth switch on the
git clone command, and providing it with the value of
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/dkarter/bullets.vim
