Git Submobules

Working with git submodules

Being relatively new to using Hugo one of the neat things about setting up my site was using the git submodule command to add the theme for the site. While I’m not new to using git, this is my first experience with using submodules.

Today while perusing Hacker News I spotted a link to Chris Jean’s post on working with git submodules and found it to be a quite good yet simple overview of exactly what I needed to know. It seems this post has been around for quite some time (at least 11 years based on the comments) so hopefully some of the quirks of submodules has been “fixed”.
