''Warning: the source code for Fiji is rather large; make sure that you have two gigabytes of disk space free before beginning this.''
To fetch the Fiji source code
we recommend that you use [http://git.or.cz/ git]. (There will be very little in the way of tutorial information about git on this page, but there are many such resources available on the web and you may wish to see the pages on this wiki in the Category [[:Category:Git|Git]].) You first step should be to "clone" the fiji repository with the following command:
git clone git://pacific.mpi-cbg.de/fiji.git
