as of git version 1.9.3 (Apple Git-50) on mac how do i remove a git submodule? I am reading alot of outdated information with many developers telling me they wont work. What is the current way ? will
git deinit pathToSubModule do the trick ?
The steps i thought would work are here but comments say they wont.
Let me explain my current situation and what i need accomplished. I've installed the Quick repository and added it to as submodule to my project. This code is already checked in and others are using it. What i now need to do is fork the same Quick repository and host it on a more secure github that my company has (so a completely other private github). After forking it i want to add that fork as a gitSubmodule and let it replace the current Quick submodule i had installed previously.
update: i've read that the following is the correct way on latest git version please confirm?
To remove a submodule added using: git submodule add firstname.lastname@example.org:repos/blah.git lib/blah Run: git rm lib/blah That's it. For old versions of git (circa ~1.8.5) use: git submodule deinit lib/blah git rm lib/blah git config -f .gitmodules --remove-section submodule.lib/blah
