Today I was wandering the world of HTTP/3 and cURL. As it turns out, you need to compile it yourself in order to get experimental HTTP/3 support.
But when doing a recursive clone on Cloudflare’s quiche library I was greeted with horribly slow clones. I saw quickly what the issue was. An
https:// clone in a submodule. Luckily git provides a way to rewrite URLs, without touching anything in the repo! Perfect for these kind of hacks.
In order to make use of it just add a blob like this into your
[url "ssh://git@<remotehost>/"] insteadOf = https://<remotehost>/
So in my case it looks somewhat like this:
[url "ssh://email@example.com/"] insteadOf = https://gitlab.com/ [url "ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/"] insteadOf = https://github.com/
You can also just apply this override to pushes, simply set
pushInsteadOf instead of
insteadOf. Or hell. Push to a different URL when you pull from another override, go nuts!
