<h2>NAME</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<p>gitmodules -
defining submodule properties
</p>
</div>
</div>
<div id="content">
<h2 id="_synopsis">SYNOPSIS</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>$GIT_WORK_DIR/.gitmodules</p></div>
</div>
<h2 id="_description">DESCRIPTION</h2>
<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>The <tt>.gitmodules</tt> file, located in the top-level directory of a git
working tree, is a text file with a syntax matching the requirements
of <a href="git-config.html">git-config(1)</a>.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>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:</p></div>
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
submodule.&lt;name&gt;.path
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
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 <tt>/</tt>. All submodule paths must
be unique within the .gitmodules file.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
submodule.&lt;name&gt;.url
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Defines a URL from which the submodule repository can be cloned.
This may be either an absolute URL ready to be passed to
<a href="git-clone.html">git-clone(1)</a> or (if it begins with ./ or ../) a location
relative to the superproject&#8217;s origin repository.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
submodule.&lt;name&gt;.update
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Defines what to do when the submodule is updated by the superproject.
If <em>checkout</em> (the default), the new commit specified in the
superproject will be checked out in the submodule on a detached HEAD.
If <em>rebase</em>, the current branch of the submodule will be rebased onto
the commit specified in the superproject. If <em>merge</em>, the commit
specified in the superproject will be merged into the current branch
in the submodule.
This config option is overridden if <em>git submodule update</em> is given
the <em>--merge</em> or <em>--rebase</em> options.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
submodule.&lt;name&gt;.fetchRecurseSubmodules
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This option can be used to control recursive fetching of this
submodule. If this option is also present in the submodules entry in
.git/config of the superproject, the setting there will override the
one found in .gitmodules.
Both settings can be overridden on the command line by using the
"--[no-]recurse-submodules" option to "git fetch" and "git pull".
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
submodule.&lt;name&gt;.ignore
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Defines under what circumstances "git status" and the diff family show
a submodule as modified. When set to "all", it will never be considered
modified, "dirty" will ignore all changes to the submodules work tree and
takes only differences between the HEAD of the submodule and the commit
recorded in the superproject into account. "untracked" will additionally
let submodules with modified tracked files in their work tree show up.
Using "none" (the default when this option is not set) also shows
submodules that have untracked files in their work tree as changed.
If this option is also present in the submodules entry in .git/config of
the superproject, the setting there will override the one found in
.gitmodules.
Both settings can be overridden on the command line by using the
"--ignore-submodule" option.
