Inside that i added a submodule repo B. Submodules are tracked by the exact commit specified in the parent project, not a branch, a ref, or any other symbolic reference. Would you like to answer one of these instead? Eventually, any interesting software project will come to depend on another project, library, or framework. Essentially, a submodule is nothing more than a pointer to a specific commit of a repository that is connected with a path inside of another repository. Unless the content declares otherwise, the post content on this site is declared public domain and can be used in any manner with or without attribution or permission.

As it stands now, my main project is in a broken state due to its missing dependency, and the only way I can think of to get it back is to delete the project directory and re-clone it, losing my local branches in the process. You can interact with all the content from rock as if it were a folder inside slingshot because it is. Also have a look at. I ended up having it as a separate git repo, and I put a symlink in my main project.
Running git submodule init from the main directory says that the submodule was registered, but it doesn't get my any files back. Total 3 delta 2 , reused 0 delta 0 To git github.

When you have submodule code that you are modifying and others may be modifying, you have to start working with that specific repo as a regular repo which it still is rather than as a submodule. You commonly perform this task after you pull a change in the parent repository that updates the revision checked out in the submodule. Hopefully this will be resolved in the future, because we now have to do submodule removal manually. All the instructions will be run from the working directory of the SampleTheme repository. We recommend you use something like our to ensure that all collaborators and services have access to the same repository content everywhere.
