Git X-Modules is a new product by TMate Software. We call it "Submodules – done right".

Have you ever been struggling with code spread between several repositories?

If yes, then you probably know, how troublesome the native Git Submodules could be. There a few alternatives, but none of them removes the burden from the end user completely or is a fully supported commercial product.

We used our repository mirror technology, perfected by SubGit and SVN Mirror, to create a new solution for this case - totally server-side.

  • Add modules, selecting a branch, and a path to include.
  • No need to run any special commands or follow a specific sequence of actions.
  • Users make no difference between external (module) files and their "parent" repository.
  • One `git push` and `git pull` is good for all.
  • Any Git client is supported out of the box.
  • All updates to the external (module) repositories are fetched automatically.
  • Various ways to insert commits from external modules into the "parent" history.
  • Your favorite TMate Support!

Git X-Modules exists as a cloud app for GitHub (free in beta) and a self-hosted app for Atlassian Bitbucket Server / Data Center.
Dedicated plugins for GitLab and other Git servers are coming soon!
