avoid the submodules. I had big troubles with them, breaking the CI/CD process because the development team didn’t understand fully how the submodules works (heck neither I fully understand)

so we’re running with for loops

we’re running with about 40 different repos.

Yea, submodules are a red-herring. They look like the “perfect solution” to meld poly repos into one repo as necessary, only very few know how to use them in practice. I confess having used them many times, but always forget the syntax and always regret it after the fact. The Makefile with a target to check out the repos is just so much more straight forward!

I don’t want to put git related questions out in #general so I created this channel instead. Crazy? Perhaps, but so is git sometimes.

That being said…. I’m curious how my fellow devops practitioners are managing projects with several git repos (sometimes several dozen in my case)? I’ve found that git submodules obfuscate a repository so I tend to minimize using them.

Zachary Loeber avatar

Right now I tend to create an ‘umbrella’ repo which contains a Makefile to pull down the project’s repos into a schema broken down by category (which is usually one category per team on the project then a few extras like platform, infra, and environment)

It seems like I’m missing a tool that may do the job more succinctly than that though?
