GUI for command-line subversion client

| Watch this File

File Information

SVNGUI provides a GUI for the subversion version control system. There are excellent third-party tools that do this, such as TortoiseSVN for Windows, or Versions & Cornerstone for Mac, though the Mac GUIs cost money.
All third-party tools require you to switch to another program, which, on some days is just too much hassle. With this GUI, there is no excuse anymore to not commit your code regularly :)

For this to work, you need a command-line subversion client installed on your system. If the server hosting the code uses certificates, you have to accept it on the command line once, before you run svnGUI, otherwise Matlab hangs. If you know how to accept certificates from within Matlab, please let me know.

The GUI allows you to update, commit, add, and assess the difference between files that are under version control

There are three ways to call svnGUI
(1) svnGUI
(2) svnGUI(somePath)
(3) svnGUI('ask')
(1) assumes that the directories under version control are located in $MATLABHOME/matlab/, or in $HOME/matlab/, where $xx are environment variables with name xx that specify a path.
(2) assumes that the directories under version control are located in somePath/
(3) lets you interactively choose where the directories under version control are located.

Note that svnGUI is only committing code from directories where you entered a message that is different from noCommit. In other words, if there have been changes for two directories, but you only write a comment for the first one, changes in the second directory are not committed.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.8 (R2009a)
Other requirements This should work on all platforms, as long as a command-line subversion client is installed, and as long as the security certificates have been accepted.
