How to clone a repository including the submodules or sub repositories in Git?
Published January 8, 2021
Sometimes we may want to clone a repository which in turn contains sub repositories or sub-modules. We can clone these sub-modules by passing
--recurse-submodules flag to the
git clone command.
It can be done like this,
git clone --recurse-submodules <GIT_REPO_URL>
This will fetch all the submodules included in the main repository. 🌟
