Note that you can use partial clone, for example this command

git clone --filter=blob:none g...@github.com:WebKit/webkit.git

will download only data which is required for files present in trunk,
resulting of repository + working directory size of 5.3GB. If you access
old parts of history or files which were removed in the past, missing
git data will be automatically fetched from network.

You can also set up custom sparse checkout pattern and completely
exclude any subdirectories you don't need, in this case you can
reduce size of working directory and .git even further.

(Note that it's recommended to install latest git release for best experience)

[webkit-dev] Shrinking Git clone size (WebKit Transition to Git)

2020-10-18 Thread Ryosuke Niwa
Hi all,

While we're making the transition to Git, I think we should try to
shrink the Git clone size. Right now, it's 10GB and I suspect we can
cut it down quite a bit without sacrificing much. For example, we can
exclude any history for LayoutTests/platform/chromium* and
LayoutTests/platforn/*qt*. I bet that would reduce the clone size
considerably.
