pip3 install gitpython

Now let's check out a git project,

import git

git_repo = 'repos/code2care/CustomRatingBarExample'

branch_name = 'master'
repo = git.Repo(git_repo)

    print(f"Checked out branch '{branch_name}'.")
except git.exc.GitCommandError as e:
    print(f"Error occurred while checking out branch '{branch_name}': {e}")
