I've setup a repository with submodules to pull a load of themes down for Espresso app — I obviously don't want to do anything with these, just keep them up to date. It seems an easier way than creating a local repository for each, but is there an easy way to pull down the latest versions of each without having to do this manually?
Unfortunately there's not, you'll have to open each submodule pull the changes and then commit those to your primary repository. When you pull a submodule you change the commit that the parent is tracking so you'll have to do this. If you're often updating/committing your submodules you're better off having separate repositories.
Hope that helps
That's a shame, It seems it's possible via command line:
Submodules seem a better clutter-free solution for an app's plugins, which might only see one or two changes in a month — is the above something that could be added as a custom script? Never done that before and I'm likely to mess it up!
Be great to see this in SourceTree if it is possible, for this kind of scenario it's handy.
