ocdev setup app (except for core/base) is just a shortcut for the git 
clone apprepo, so cloning the contacts repo from github is just fine. A 
blank white page usually means that theres a php error, check 

Also use the dev server to develop. You can set up a dev environment + 
contacts by doing the following:

cd ~
ocdev setup base
cd core
php -S localhost:8080
