Getting the Source
Here are the steps to set up TortoiseSVN and use it to grab a working copy:
- Make sure you have TortoiseSVN installed ( http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/download.html)
- Right-click on the desktop go get a context popup menu.
- Select "SVN Checkout..." from that popup menu. (A dialog "TortoiseSVN: Checkout" opens.)
- In the "URL of repository:" enter " http://svn.tiddlywiki.org"
- In the "Checkout directory:" enter the path to a convenient local directory that should contain the working copy. (You may use the "..." button to browse for the directory and create new folders.)
- Make sure "HEAD revision" is selected and all other checkboxes are unchecked.
- Press the "OK" button to start the checkout. (A window appears, displaying the checkout progress.)
- When the checkout is completed (last line in the log "Completed At revision: nnn") press the "OK" button to close the progress window.
Now your local directory contains contains working copies of the files from the server.
To issue SVN commands (like update, commit etc.) just right-click the file/directory of interest and select the SVN command from the context menu.
Here are the steps to set up SvnX and use it to grab a working copy:
- Run SvnX. You should see two windows, one labelled 'Repositories' and one labelled 'Working Copies'
- In the 'Repositories' window, create a new entry using the '+' button. Set the name to 'TiddlyWiki.org' and the path to ' http://svn.tiddlywiki.org/'. You don't need a username and password
- Drag the completed entry labelled 'TiddlyWiki.org' from the 'Repositories' window into the list in the 'Working Copies' window
- Set the path to a convenient local directory. I use /Users/jeremyruston/Sites/tiddlywiki.org (useful if you also enable web sharing in System Preferences)
- Double click on the new entry in the 'Working Copies' window to open it's window
- Click the 'Update' button to bring your local working copy up to date with the server - the first time you do it will mean pulling down the whole repository
Now you should be able to browse your local copy of the repository.
