  1. if you just want to clone from a git repo (i have edited this but you get the idea)
    /**
    * This function handles the pull / init / clone of a git repo
    *
    * @param $git_url
    * Example of git clone url git://github.com/someuser/somerepo.git
    *
    * @return bool true
    */
    public static function pullOrCloneRepo($git_url) {
    if (!isset($git_url)) {
    return false;
    }
    // validate contains git://github.com/
    if (strpos($git_url, ‘git://github.com/’) !== FALSE) {
    // create a directory and change permissions
    $uri = ‘public://somedir’
    //check the dir
    $file_path = drupal_realpath($uri); // change this if not in drupal
    if (isset($file_path)) {
    $first_dir = getcwd();
    // change dir to the new path
    $new_dir = chdir($file_path);
    // Git init
    $git_init = shell_exec(‘git init’);
    // Git clone
    $git_clone = shell_exec(‘git clone ‘. $git_url);
    // Git pull
    $git_pull = shell_exec(‘git pull’);
    // change dir back
    $change_dir_back = chdir($first_dir);
    return true;
    }
    }
    else {
    return false;
    }
    }
