How to Pick a Commit of Git Submodule?

Current State

There is a new submodule ‘test’ and we want to add it to the repo.

Steps

Git add submodule

$ cd my_repo
$ git submodule add git@github.com:vishalkanaujia/dev-tools.git

Initialize the repo

$ git submodule update --init --recursive

cd to the submodule

$ cd dev-tools

By default, the latest version is picked. We can checkout to a commit for moving a different version.

$ git checkout abdcca6
