Error when trying to open submodule #606
I have a repo with a submodule. This appears in "Status" window when I open main repo in git-cola. When submodule is selected, the commit history appears in "Diff" window. If I try a right click on submodule in Status windows, a submenu is opened suggest me to "Launch git-cola", assuming is the means to browse the submodule I select it. Then I get an error:
I suppose something went wrong with submodule handling.
Does Git-cola support git sub module ? According to #17 it seems something was done for this.
What is the status of submodule support in git cola ?
I just tried it here and I think it's working.. are there any messages in your terminal?
It doesn't actually launch a separate session.. it's kind of subtle. What it does is switch projects/directories to the submodule. If they both don't have any modified or untracked files they might look the same. Any hints?
No message on my terminal. I don't know what should be the behaviour. I didn't find documentation about it.
I would like to work on my submodule in the same way I do with master. But if I try to open via "File -> open" I return directly in the previous view, with master project and sub module in status panel. If I try to use contextual menu with right click on sub-module name in status panel nothing happens.
So it is impossible to do something on my submodule in git-cola, and I must use command-line.
I have just made some tests. Below the creation of project and initialisation of a sub module inner from the command line (sorry for the terminal responses in french):
I tried to display the sub module in git-cola but i got the same problem. I have no mean to work on "a_sub_module" from git-cola.
