High-speed Tutorial Prev Appendix A. Flight attendants, prepare for take-off…. What follows is a quick tutorial that walks you through some basic Subversion subveraion and operation.

When you finish it, you should have a basic understanding of Subversion’s typical usage. The examples used in this appendix assume that you have svnthe Subversion command-line client, and svnadminthe administrative tool, ready to go on a Unix-like operating system.

This tutorial also works at the Windows commandline prompt, assuming you make some obvious tweaks. We also assume you are using Subversion 1. Subversion stores all versioned data in a central repository. To begin, create a new repository:. This new directory contains among other things a tuutorial of database files.

You won’t see your versioned files if you peek tutoeial. For more information about repository creation and maintenance, see Chapter 5, Repository Administration.


SVN Tutorial

The repository is just a virtual versioned filesystem, a large tree that can hold anything you wish. Some administrators prefer to store only one project in a repository, and others prefer to store multiple projects in a repository by placing them into separate directories. So while you might see references to projects throughout this book, keep in mind that we’re only ever talking about some directory or collection of directories in the repository.

In this example, we assume that you already have some sort of project a collection of files and directories that you wish to import into your newly created Subversion repository. Begin by organizing your data into a single directory called myproject or whatever you wish.

For reasons that will be clear later see Chapter 4, Branching and Mergingyour project’s tree structure should contain three top-level directories named branchestagsand trunk. The trunk directory should contain all of your data, while branches and tags directories are empty:.

The branchestagsand trunk subdirectories aren’t actually required by Subversion. They’re merely a popular convention that you’ll most likely want to use later on. Now tutkrial repository contains this tree of data. As mentioned earlier, you won’t see your files by directly peeking into the repository; they’re all stored within a database.

But the repository’s imaginary filesystem now contains a top-level directory named myprojectwhich in subvegsion contains your data. In fact, you can even delete that directory if you wish. Now you have a personal copy of part of the repository in a new directory named myproject.


You can edit the files in your working copy and then commit those changes back into the repository. Run svn diff to see unified diff output of your changes.

Run svn commit to commit the new version of your subverssion to the repository. For a full tour of all the things you can do with your working copy, read Chapter 2, Basic Usage.

At this point, you have the option of making your repository available to others over a network. See Chapter 6, Server Configuration to learn about the different sorts of server ttorial available and how to configure them. Blog Locations Contact Us. Global Sites Chinese Korean Japanese.
