Creating a New Project from Git

Git is a distributed revision control system with an emphasis on speed. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.

Zend Studio allows you to create a new PHP project by importing an existing GitHub project.
