degit is almost similar to git clone. degit makes copies of git repositories. When you run
degit some-user/some-repo, it will find the latest commit on
https://github.com/some-user/some-repo and download it.
Advantage of degit over
git clone - quicker than using git clone, because we're not downloading the entire git history.
