Thanks to Ashley Hewson from LShift blog for this thorough write-up on git submodules.
I regularly hear complaints that git submodules are difficult to work with. If you search for ‘git submodules’, then (depending on your filter bubble) you’ll probably get several blog articles warning you not to use them. I agree that the UI is not at all intuitive,1 but like most things in git, submodules are quite simple under the hood. In this post I’ll share the incantations for solving some specific submodule problems, and try to shed some light on what’s really going on.
