Open the Terminal activity

if not yet installed, install git from upstream repos, eg

  dnf install git 


  apt install git

depending on the underlying distro (which, remember, constitutes the bulk of the system and on which Sugar has a hard dependency).


  git clone https://example.com/some/path

at this point, what's done depends on the package in question, but it's entirely possible to launch an activity from that directory, or to install it by copying it into ~/Activities 

That's off the top of my head, from memory, and may require some minor tweaks, but I did see 10 people do this within the last month.
