How to remove Git Submodule

To remove a submodule you need to:

1 Delete the relevant section from the .gitmodules file. 2 Stage the .gitmodules changes git add .gitmodules 3 Delete the relevant section from .git/config. 4 Run git rm --cached path_to_submodule (no trailing slash). 5 Run rm -rf .git/modules/path_to_submodule (no trailing slash). 6 Commit git commit -m "Removed submodule " 7 Delete the now untracked submodule files rm -rf path_to_submodule

You can’t perform that action at this time.
