Git Pull with Submodule

#Git

Pull git repo with submodule

For a repo with submodules, we can pull all submodules using

git submodule update --init --recursive

for the first time. All submodules will be pulled down locally.

To update submodules, we can use

git submodule update --recursive --remote

or simply

git pull --recurse-submodules

The first one works for git version 1.8.2 or above while the second one works for git version 1.7.3 or above.
