Lemme make a PR for you to update that git submodule
A tool to automate making GitHub Pull Requests about updating git submodules.
You should be able to just give it the name of a repo (e.g. mozilla/kuma) and it finds out which submodules there are and looks to see if they can be updated.
Not really a demo but [this pull request](https://github.com/mdn/stumptown-renderer/pull/62) was entirely made from this script.
## Limitations and caveats
At the time of writing, this is a prototype. It’s doing the least possible to make the most basic thing work.
It requires that you’re allowed to push branches to the origin.
It only really works with GitHub.com
It’s doing the git clone with SSH. So not sure how to make this work in a server.
It’s only a CLI at the moment.
There’s no good way to auto-close now out-of-date older PRs
No unit tests
Not tested beyond the defaults of master and origin
It can only make 1 PR per the difference between the head and the submodule.
To see what the difference in a submodule update you have to rely on GitHub’s “Files changed” tab on the PR.
## Getting started
You’ll need a GitHub access token. Go to [github.com/settings/tokens](https://github.com/settings/tokens) and create a token, copy and paste it into your .env file or use export. E.g.
cat .env GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN=a36f6736…
pip install git-submodule-updater gsmu github.com/mdn/stumptown-renderer # for example
If you don’t use a .env file you can use:
GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN=a36f6736… gsmu myorg/myrepo
This tool should be possible to run as a CLI and as a web server so it can be connected to a GitHub repo Webhook.
Clone this repo then run:
pip install -e “.[dev]”
That should have installed the CLI gsmu
If you wanna make a PR, make sure it’s formatted with black and passes flake8.
