What's the best way to manage projects that share code

Hi,

I have two projects that share 90% of their codebase with eachother. What is the best way to manage them on stash so that when I make changes, the shared code is updated for both projects but the code that is unique to each one stays unique?

The 'correct' way is to modularise your code.

That way the shared code goes in it's own module and can be pulled in by whatever build system you use. e.g. Maven, you declare a dependency

However, if not possible, or impractical now, you could look at using something like git sub-modules.
