NAME

       gitmodules - defining submodule properties

SYNOPSIS

       gitmodules

DESCRIPTION

       The .gitmodules file, located in the top-level directory of a git
       working tree, is a text file with a syntax matching the requirements of
       git-config(1).

       The file contains one subsection per submodule, and the subsection
       value is the name of the submodule. Each submodule section also
       contains the following required keys:

       submodule.<name>.path
           Defines the path, relative to the top-level directory of the git
           working tree, where the submodule is expected to be checked out.
           The path name must not end with a /. All submodule paths must be
           unique within the .gitmodules file.

       submodule.<name>.url
           Defines an url from where the submodule repository can be cloned.

EXAMPLES

       Consider the following .gitmodules file:

           [submodule "libfoo"]
                   path = include/foo
                   url = git://foo.com/git/lib.git

           [submodule "libbar"]
                   path = include/bar
                   url = git://bar.com/git/lib.git
       This defines two submodules, libfoo and libbar. These are expected to
       be checked out in the paths include/foo and include/bar, and for both
       submodules an url is specified which can be used for cloning the
       submodules.
