SVN Autocheckout

Sebastian Buckpesch

Dear USVN-Team,

thanks a lot for your product. It helps me a lot to manage my SVN-Repository and projects. As a contribution to your work I send you my auto-commit files, which I think many developers are using.

What auto-commit does: Each time someone is checking in a new version of a file to the repository, the file will be checked-out to the www-directory automatically, so that everybody can see the new version live on the test-/web-server. To get this functionality you need two files in the hooks-folder of a project:
  • hooks/post-commit (you have to replace two variables, repository path and path to www-folder)
  • hooks/bin/autocheckout.sh (has to be executable by post-commit: chmod +x)


Proposal to quick including autocheckout functionality:
1) When an admin creates a new project in usvn he can choose to use auto-checkout. If so, he has to enter the server path to his www-directory he wants to checkout the files to.
2) After saving you include the two attached files into the repository template (folder hooks) and replace the two variables in post-commit-file (repo-path and www-path)

That's it! I think it's not so complicated to include and would help many users.
THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR PRODUCT!!!

Best Regards from Dublin,
Sebastian

USVN 1.0

You might not know it, but USVN is a scholastic project. The original creators of the project have been quite busy with school and internships, plus they have now finshed their studies, and have been released in the wild world of real work.

However do not worry, dear USVN user. Because the original creators now having a job does not mean the project will be abandonned!
I am proud to announce that we are taking over the project, with the original creators still supervising us. And in case you are wondering, this is who "we" are:
  • Sylvain «Zak» Hughet
  • Thibault «naixn» Martin-Lagardette
  • Damien «Tidam» Meurisse
  • Jean-Philippe «Carbonimax» Meunier
  • Pierre «Nelyus» Monod-Broca


We know that this might not actually be a «good» news for you per say, but we are not coming empty-handed.
In fact, we are announcing the release of USVN 1.0!

Yes, you read correctly, we are releasing USVN version 1.0.
However, 1.0 does not mean it's a final product. But a new team, with an almost new code base... We thought it deserved a different version number, just for the sake of it!
Without further ado, here is the interesting part:

What's new in USVN 1.0:
  • A brand new design!
    USVN worked great, but some things were missing for a better user experience. So we decided to start with a new design! We hope you'll like it!
  • A newer code base!
    Some parts were quite old, and did not fit in an application this big, but we now have a newer (and hopefully better) code base for more speed and responsiveness.
  • Revision browsing + revision differences + syntax highlighting!
    SVN is a powerful tool, because it allows you to keep a history of your source code. And you can also see what changed between different revisions.
    Well guess what? You can now do that via USVN now, too! As a bonus, you will get a colored diff!
    Plus, we know most of you do not really enjoy reading your code plain black on plain white. So be happy, because we have syntax highlighting! (using GeSHI)
  • LDAP support!
    The more user databases, the harder it is to manage. LDAP aims at creating a unique directory services protocol, and it does a great job doing that.
    You asked us to implement LDAP, and we heard you. 1.0 comes with (limited) LDAP support. Why limited? Because for now, it can only be used to login. You cannot modify your LDAP backend using USVN at all (aka, you can't add group, people, etc.), but you can use it for users that already exist in your LDAP backend.
  • A newer Zend version
    Up until now, USVN was using a version of the Zend Framework that came out about when it (USVN) started. But it's been a while now, and there has been a lot of newer versions of the framework.
    We are now using Zend Framework version 1.7.4. We know it is not the latest one, but bare with us, Zend released 12 versions in 6 months, including 2 major revisions.
    Don't worry, we will be updating the Zend Framework from time to time.

The online demo has been updated. Go check it out to see all the new features.

We really hope you will be pleased by this new version.
As usual, if you find a bug, try to check if we already know about it, and if not, create a ticket on the Trac.
