Cloning a specific Git Branch

Cloning a specific Git branch is very easy and most of us don't required at all. But this is a very practical ask if your Repository have too many branches or having a big repo with lots of artifacts in it. 
    You can pull / clone a Specific branch these ways - 

1. Older Way (Do not use): 

$ git clone
$ git checkout develop

The problem with above commands is, It will clone the whole repo with all the branches and then switch to your branch in ask. 

2. Little Better Way (Do not use because its a replica of Older Way): 

$ git clone -b develop

This is same as Older Way, the only difference is, you need to execute one command rather then two. 

3. New Way:

If you are using git version 1.7 or later, this is the best and sweet command to clone a single branch from git repository.

$ git clone -b develop --single-branch
