Cloning

Drone automatically configures a default clone step if not explicitly defined. You can manually configure the clone step in your pipeline for customization:

+clone:
+  git:
+    image: plugins/git

pipeline:
  build:
    image: golang
    commands:
      - go build
      - go test

Example configuration to override depth:

clone:
  git:
    image: plugins/git
+   depth: 50

Example configuration to use a custom clone plugin:

clone:
  git:
+   image: octocat/custom-git-plugin

Example configuration to clone Mercurial repository:

clone:
  hg:
+   image: plugins/hg
+   path: bitbucket.org/foo/bar

Git Submodules

To use the credentials that cloned the repository to clone it’s submodules, update .gitmodules to use https instead of git:

[submodule "my-module"]
	path = my-module
-	url = git@github.com:octocat/my-module.git
+	url = https://github.com/octocat/my-module.git
