How to save code file on GitHub and run on Jupyter notebook?

With GitHub we can store our code online, and with Jupyter notebook we can execute only a segment of our Python code. I want to use them together. I am able to edit code with Jupyter notebook that is stored on my computer. But, I am unable to find a way to run a code that stored on GitHub. So, do you know a way to do that.

Here are some examples:

Answer

Github is a tool for version and source control, you will need to get a copy of the code to a local environment.

There is a beginner's tutorial here

Once that you have set up a github account and define your local and remote repositories, you will be able to retrieve the code with git checkout. Further explanation is in the tutorial
