- svn co url
Checkout, creates dir of name url
- svn ci -m comment
Checkin - applies to the svn-structure that cwd is in
To create a new repository on the server and import a directory of files;
cd /tmp mkdir SERVER svnadmin create /tmp/SERVER/newrepos
Create example file for upload
cd /tmp mkdir MYTREE echo '#!/usr/bin/perl -w\nprint "hello world";' > /tmp/MYTREE/helloWorld.pl svn import /tmp/MYTREE file:///tmp/SERVER/newrepos/some/project
Listing the contents in the repository;
svn list file:///tmp/SERVER/newrepos/some/project
To make a local copy you need to use the checkout command. This creates a new directory (default called newrepos) which is a local copy of newrepos.
mkdir LOCAL cd LOCAL svn co file:///tmp/SERVER/newrepos/some/project/ # fetches project/test.pl svn co file:///tmp/SERVER/newrepos/some/ # fetches some/project/test.pl rm -rf /tmp/LOCAL svn co file:///tmp/SERVER/newrepos/some/project/ /tmp/LOCAL # Creates LOCAL dir
Note: The directory the svn command is run in determines where the local checkout directories and files will end up.
Now that you have created a local copy all work should be conducted within it. There is a hidden directory called .svn which contains all the information required for the svn framework.
cd /tmp/LOCAL # Work in the lcoal copy of svn
To update a file on your LOCAL directory
cd /tmp/LOCAL svn update # "." is updated cd /tmp svn update /tmp/LOCAL # Sepecifying path
Useful Checking command
svn status /tmp/LOCAL
L abc.c # svn has a lock in its .svn directory for abc.c M bar.c # the content in bar.c has local modifications M baz.c # baz.c has property but no content modifications X 3rd_party # this dir is part of an externals definition ? foo.o # svn doesn't manage foo.o ! some_dir # svn manages this, but it's either missing or incomplete ~ qux # versioned as file/dir/link, but type has changed I .screenrc # svn doesn't manage this, and is configured to ignore it A + moved_dir # added with history of where it came from M + moved_dir/README # added with history and has local modifications D stuff/fish.c # this file is scheduled for deletion A stuff/loot/bloo.h # this file is scheduled for addition C stuff/loot/lump.c # this file has conflicts from an update R xyz.c # this file is scheduled for replacement S stuff/squawk # this file or dir has been switched to a branch
To add a new file to the local svn copy, first make a new file within the directory structure
cd /tmp/LOCAL echo '#!/usr/bin/perl -w\nprint qq(hello world!);' > /tmp/LOCAL/helloWorld2.pl svn add helloWorld2.pl
To upload the LOCAL copy changes to the SERVER copy use the commit command
svn commit /tmp/LOCAL
