Sharing module templates / source code control

Go to solution

Hi All,


In a project where multiple developers are working together using github, I was wondering what the best way was to share a DQMH module template. 


I didn't see an obvious way to do it using the DQMH template creation, since it relies on paths on your PC, though I'm sure I could have missed something. 


Would it be better to use VIPM to create a package which installs the necessary files to the correct relative paths?

VIPM would be my recommendation.

A more extended reply as to why is better to install your templates and other dependencies in vi.lib vs helping them local to your project:
