# Following the latest source¶

These are the instructions if you just want to follow the latest nibabel source, but you don’t need to do any development for now.

The steps are:

• Install git

• get local copy of the git repository from github

• update local copy from time to time

## Get the local copy of the code¶

From the command line:

git clone git://github.com/nipy/nibabel.git


You now have a copy of the code tree in the new nibabel directory.

## Updating the code¶

From time to time you may want to pull down the latest code. Do this with:

cd nibabel
git pull


The tree in nibabel will now have the latest changes from the initial repository.
