Copy .git folder terminal with copy all

I’m trying to use cp to copy all files from sub-folder to current folder in zsh on osx. I basically want to have the problem these people are trying to get around:

  • cp command should ignore some files
  • How to use 'cp' command to exclude a specific directory?
  • https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/91022/copy-all-dotfiles-except-for-git-and

I want the opposite.
When I copy files, my .git folder is NOT being copied along with the rest of the files.

  • I’ve tried the following to no avail:

    cp -RLv fetch/* ./
    cp -RL fetch/* ./
    cp -Rv fetch/* ./
    cp -R fetch/* ./
    cp -rv fetch/* ./
    cp -r fetch/* ./
    cp fetch/* ./
    

    Is this possible? I’m okay with using mv too if I have to.

    The correct command is cp -r fetch/. ./

    Asterisk (*) doesn’t work because it is extended by the shell, and by default it doesn’t include dotfiles/directories.

    try this?

    cp -a fetch fetch-copy
