Clone a repository partially (sub-folders)

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

How do I clone a repository hosted in BitBucket partially with Mercurial? Let's say, myrepos has several sub-folders and directory structure within it. I want to clone only one-subfolder, and quickly make a fix in one file and commit it back. Mercurial does not seem to recognize <username>/myrepos/directoryI as a valid repository. If my repository is large, and I quickly want to clone and fix one particular file, is there any option to do that? Does anybody else have a similar problem?

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
