Reusing DQMH Modules

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello,

 

What is the best way to reuse DQMH modules for future projects? I currently work at an ITAR facility so the code shouldn’t be uploaded anywhere. 

I’ve read about PPLs and am aware of the VIPM reuse library.

 

Is there an issue with me just placing all my modules in a certain folder and just using the VIs from that folder and having them tied to the dependency of each new project? I just tried this with an API tester and it seems to work with no problem.

You could consider creating a repository for every reusable module, and then using Git Submodules.

 

Git submodule basics:

  1. Git official website: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-Submodules
  2. Cameron McKenzie explains git submodule in his YouTube channel playlist: Git submodule examples and tutorials

Or if you were using SVN, then maybe SVN externals (similar but not exactly the same thing as git submodules):
