If your repository includes a
.gitmodules file Codeship will automatically initialize and update the configured submodules. To do this, we run the following command after cloning your repository.
git submodule update --recursive --init
For submodules that are hosted as public repositories that should just work (and let us know if it doesn’t).
If your submodule is however a private repository you’d need to make sure Codeship can clone the repository.
firstname.lastname@example.org:codeship/documentation.git). If you refence the submodule via a HTTPS based URL (e.g.
https://github.com/codeship/documentation.git), the git client will ask for authentication credentials during the build and run into a timeout (as you can’t provide them).
See the git documentation on Git Submodules for more information on working with submodules.
