Like tortoise svn but in gnome

Tampoco digamos tanto :-). Sin embargo algo que es un hecho es que los usuarios de tortoise svn que conozco cuando trabajan en linux se sienten bastante incómodos. Tortoise svn tiene una ventaja respecto a sus competidores, se maneja desde el explorador de windows.

En linux no he encontrado clientes con tal característica. Sin embargo nautilus ofrece de forma sencilla extensiones en los menús contextuales: nautilus-scripts. Ya hay gente que se ha preocupado de hacer lo necesario para hacer un menú parecido al de tortoise svn:

sudo apt-get install nautilus-script-collection-svn

nautilus-script-manager enable Subversion

No obstante en muchos aspectos deja bastante que desear, es interesante para hacer operaciones sencillas rápidamente (updates, commit, reverts, rename…). Sin embargo para operaciones mas complejas (diffs, logs…) recomiendo SVN Workbench.

Not completely like tortoise svn. However is a fact that most of tortoise svn users when work in linux miss that tool. The main advantage of tortoise svn against their competence is that you can work in the windows explorer directly without open any form or window program.AFAIK linux does not have clients with those features. Nonetheless nautilus deliver a easy way to extend contextual menus: nautilus-scripts. There are some of that nautilus scripts to work with subversion:
sudo apt-get install nautilus-script-collection-svn

nautilus-script-manager enable Subversion

Nevertheless IMO this tool has a few of weakness, it is useful for simple operations like (update, commit, revert, rename…), for complex ones is better use another client: I recommend SVN Workbench.

  1. If you want to use an standalone svn client there is nothing better that the CLI interface. The other gui alternatives misses a lot of useful features that tortoise svn implements.

    But if you use Eclipse or MonoDevelop you have great addins for svn with complete integration with the IDE.

    So there is no point using an standalone gui-client, unless for newbies 🙂

    Pd: Great start with your blog, but please, kill the main[1] page of your domain :p

    Yeah xD I have to do that.

    CLI roolz but you should know that when a developer taste good flavours (like tortoise svn) does not want anything else.

    Maybe you might be interested in this?

    Looks similar to Tortoise.

    It looks great. I’m going to test it.

    Thank you! 🙂

      I’m been testing nautilus svn for some months. It looked great regards the interface but it had some performance problems eating cpu-time without any sense, finally I had to uninstall it.

      But it seems that it’s been evolving and maybe such bugs have been corrected. The new version has been renamed to rabitSVN and this is the url:

      Hope it helps.

    Geus I found your blog while I was googling! This post has two years old, so I don’t know if you heard about rabbitvcs since then. It deals with both svn and git, and it is like totoise but in gnome 🙂

    It doesn’t work in gnome 3 yet.

    P.D.: Tas por almensilla? pega un toque si estas por aqui, tienes q veni a ve el piso nuevo xDD
