It has been quite a while since Code Plex died, and I haven’t had the time to move my projects anywhere until now.
I have a series of projects I have recently updated and I want to release them open source, but I don’t want separete copies to appear on someone’s hard drive if they clone multiple projects.
This image shows the directory structure, I rearranged my Projects folder on my hard drive to put everything I want to share under one directory:
The directory contains 21 solutions, and 35 projects, but it will make up about 7 or 8 main Git projects (is repos the correct term?)
Many of these projects share references with each other, so I would like to know is there some way to have Git pull a project in (is that clone in Git talk?) if the project isn’t found locally or should I post one big repository and people can just use the solution(s) they want in it?
And the guidelines for this forum said search before you post, but when I searched nothing remotely similar to my question came up, but I am sure this is an issue someone has encountered before.
And as you answer, I use Visual Studio Git, command line Git speak is not something I know how to do, so please keep answers as if you are talking to a complete gitiot (spell check knew about that word so I must not be the first).
Thanks, giving code away is harder than it seems like it should be. And yes, I know they have this stuff called documentation, but I spent my allocated free time building these projects, so a crash course could expedite these projects being released by many years if I had to wait until I finished reading something; how 20th century.
