Getting the Code

Checkout [depot tools](, and run

        fetch v8

This will checkout V8 into the directory `v8` and fetch all of its dependencies.
To stay up to date, run

        git pull origin
        gclient sync

For fetching all branches, add the following into your remote
configuration in `.git/config`:

        fetch = +refs/branch-heads/*:refs/remotes/branch-heads/*
        fetch = +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*


Please follow the instructions mentioned on the
[V8 wiki](
