Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 on this site the. In the actual situation it should display repo B and inside that repo c also should display. The first is to always publish the submodule change before publishing the change to the superproject that references it. It could also be that the design of the project has changed, and the submodules need to change with it. When that happens you will have to look the solution up.
In this case the Git parent repository tracks the commit that should be checked out in each configured submodule. You can then use whatever workflow you want when working with that remote repository. You have to explicitly update them! This approach was chosen as it makes for diagnosis of issues with submodules simpler. Submodules allow you to include or embed one or more repositories as a sub-folder inside another repository. Maybe I made a mistake.
I just tried adding an open source python package as a submodule to my project. After that, you can do whatever you need to do with that code from the second repository. Will I be given the chance to use the desired submodule on a merge? Repos with submodules simply store where the submodule repo is from and which commit of that repo is referenced. I am pretty sure that git does not have a command for this internally. The submodules are stored in. It might even be one of the better ways of doing it.
Note: It is written in Perl. All that is left to do now is to commit the changes and then push the commit to a remote system if necessary. Git submodules work well enough for simple cases, but these days there are often better tools available for managing dependencies than what Git submodules can offer. Does git have a built in command to do this? I believe that the free flow of information and ideas is key to the past and future development of mankind. Possible Workflows By remembering this core concept and reflecting on it, you can understand that submodule support some workflows well and less optimally others. Both projects have the submodule with the master branch.
By default, a submodule is basically a bookmark to a specific commit of another repository. Again this works when updates are not too frequent.

There are four main functions you will need to understand in order to work with Git submodules. All the instructions will be run from the working directory of the SampleTheme repository. Fortunately, submodules work very well for me. The concept of submodules is brilliant.
How do I integrate a submodule back into my project? Can be done by using: git config submodule. This syntax will always remain the same. But what about your big sprawling code bases? But how do you bring this all together? Whenever you checkout a commit, the repo becomes headless. This new file contains the details we supplied about the new submodule. So I added it, that worked.
