Update Software via Github


Hey there,

just a really dumb question, but I can’t figure out, how it works:

Is there a way, to update installed software via Github as a new release is published?

For example RetroArch, which I cloned from GitHub.

Sorry for the stupid question and thanks for your help!

Edit: Just like: Enter the folder via SSH and tell via a command line to detect changes of the new released version and update the files, which are outdated.

Best wishes


If you cloned from Github, just navigate to the directory via SSH and update with git pull


Thanks. That easy – and worked really well. :slight_smile:
