File transfer-From the Internet to ALICE

From ALICE Documentation

From the Internet to ALICE

You can transfer a file from the Internet directly to your project directory on ALICE (without first downloading to your computer). For example, if you want to transfer a repository from GitHub, use the command git clone REPOSITORY_URL, where REPOSITORY_URL is the link you copied from Github. If you want to transfer a file from a web page, you can use the command wget URL. If you need to transfer data from a private location (i.e., one that requires logging in), the site may or may not allow you to use wget for the transfer.

If you need to frequently transfer files, plan to move large amounts of data, or need assistance transferring data from a private location, feel free to contact us at for advice on how to.
