Auto-committing git submodule hash in super-project
When you commit in a git submodule, you need to go up to the super-project to do a second commit, which is the new hash of the submodule.
This is incredibly annoying, easy to forget and can cause all manner of problems if you don't do it.
What I want to do is:
- Commit the changes in my submodule
- Have the hash committed automatically in the super-project
- Have both the submodule and the super-project pushed to their remote-origin ('git push')
What's the best way to figure out if you're in a submodule, where the super-project is, etc and automate this?
Maybe some kind of post-commit hook in the submodule?
