cox

CLI commander for developing with multiple submodules, each with their own Git repository. Cox runs both Git and NPM-related tasks on the project source folder, as well as all the versioned submodules.

As such, a "cox checkout " should be seen as : check out branch in the project root, AS WELL as in all the submodules' repositories. This allows you to create a new feature (one that might affect contents in multiple submodules) recursively in a single command (see "cox start").

All Cox commands should be run from the root of the main project.

  }
