git module will work on it


I haven't tried it, but the currently popular solution is - git annex. It extends Git with external storage for large binary files. Stash doesn't directly support this, so I'd imagine Stash will only see things as raw Git, without Git annex would see them.

I'd imagine there are both pros and cons to using git annex, but I'm not able to give an analysis of it.

git annex is perfect and there is an another option called git submodule.

git annex does not integrate with Stash

what type of links? Am not aware of any such support in git.

git will not work well with binary files
