Legacy.svg This complicated process is no longer necessary now as we have a publicly accessible mirror of our code available on GitHub at github.com/OrganicDesign.
Info.svg Unfortunately after changing our web server over from Apache to Nginx, we can no longer offer simple HTTP for anonymous read-only access to our Subversion repositories. But you can access anonymously using the RSA key-pair and instructions provided on this page. Alternatively if you already have an RSA key-pair, you can contact us with your public key requesting it be added to the authorized_keys file for read-only access. Note that you must still connect using the svn user not your own user name.
Note.svg Note: Windows users will unfortunately have a lot more difficulty dealing with Subversion over SSH, but you can do it with Tortois and PuTTY. Tortois works out of the box with PuTTY by using the PuTTY session name in the SVN repo URL instead of the server hostname. A good tutorial covering the set up of PuTTY with RSA keys can be found here.


This RSA key can be used to access our Subversion repositories with read-only access. First change into your home directory (e.g. cd /home/YOURNAME). Copy the text of both the public and private parts below and paste them into files .ssh/od_rsa.pub and .ssh/od_rsa respectively (.ssh is a hidden directory in your home directory, if it doesn't exist you'll need to create it first). Make sure the private key has mode 600 (e.g. use chmod 600 .ssh/od_rsa). Then add a protocol to your tunnels section in your .subversion/config file that matches the existing ssh tunnel except that it specifies your new key using the -i option as follows:

od = $SVN_SSH ssh -i /home/YOURNAME/.ssh/od.rsa


You can then checkout a repository with the following syntax, and then do any read operations on it as usual.

svn checkout svn+od://svn@organicdesign.co.nz/tools
