Working with Submodules
You can read more about what Git submodules are and how they work in this Git Community Book chapter.
Cloning Repositories with Submodules
Submodules are repositories nested inside a parent repository.
Therefore when doing a clone of a parent repository it is necessary to clone the submodule repositories so that the files/folders are available in the parent repository's working directory.
Checking the Clone Submodules button from the Git Clone wizard will clone all submodule repositories after the clone of the parent repository finishes.
However, when I am done cloning, the submodule directory is empty and the project doesnt appear in the workspace.
How do I add the submodule ?
