I’m currently in the process of switching openHABian for an docker-compose based setup. Since I have two openHAB server I would like to have one git repo with shared configs and seperate repos for configs which are unique.
Example: My docker-compose.yml belongs to the shared repo since I use the same services on both servers. But an *.items file would belong to server A’s repo since I have different items on these two servers.
- Git submodules might be an option if I had all unique configs in an subfolder of the shared repo but that is not the case. Also, as far as I understand them they are not really for a use case where I have one subrepo (subrepo server A) in one installation and a different subrepo in the second installation (subrepo server B)
- Interleaved git repos seem only possible if I put the unique repo in an gitignored subfolder
Intended Setup (broad for shared files, normal for files unique for each server):
- some docker related scripts
- and all the other openhab-config files…
The idea would be to clone my shared repo and my server specific repo to a machine and to be good to go…
Has someone an idea how to achieve such merged repos where the merging is not defined by the folder structure?
