How to get an existing app’s sources

First make sure, all the needed prerequisites are met.

Get app sources

Clone the project to the ~/.nrfconnect-apps/local directory. For example, if you want to work on the RSSI Viewer, do this in a terminal on Linux/macOS or Git bash on Windows:

cd $HOME/.nrfconnect-apps/local
git clone

If you prefer it, you can also create the project directory anywhere else and create a symbolic link from ~/.nrfconnect-apps/local to the project directory.

Next steps

You now have everything set up for everyday app development, so read up about that.
