If you use **base** the following additional apps will be installed:

* bookmarks
* documents

The following optional commandline options are available:

* **--dir**: sets the name of the owncloud directory, defaults to core/
* **--branch**: sets the branch which should be cloned, defaults to master
* **--type**: sets the type that should be cloned, ssh or https. Defaults to https since you need access to the repository to use ssh
