The general question is: how to work with many different git repos at the same time in one intellij project. Where the git repos need to be inside the main application (that is one git repo too). I cannot use symlinks because I cannot commit those
I have 2 git repos
one is for the main app, the other one is for a library I am using in several projects.
Here is how it goes: I have the main app. Via composer I add my library / package to the application.
note: there is are as well IdeaProjects
in myappA there is
server deploy folder:
I do a lot of changes to the library, I have it open as another module when I work on
myappA so I do code changes to
mylib in that folder / module that actually contains the original source code of
mylib. Now i don't want to composer install or update each time I do a tiny change. So what I do is I deploy via intellij the files from the library
mylib each time on save directly into the composer install folder of my main application e.g. to
IdeaProjects/myappA/vendor/mylib. Now the problem is, I need to deploy it as well to the server deployment folder. But there seems no way to deploy files to two folders out of the box with intellij.
What else can I do?
currently I manually use a short key to trigger an ant build that then copies the folder
IdeaProjects/myappA/vendor/mylib to the server deployment directory.
