Project Overview


 2010/02/17 Announcing Release 0.8.2 and Subversion 1.6.9

Version 0.8.2 fixes some problems positioning the ToolbarMenu on multi-screen systems, and adds Subversion 1.6.9 support.

Even if you're not having ToolbarMenu placement problems, you should probably upgrade to this version, because Subversion 1.6.9 includes some nice features that will, eventually, help you transition to Subversion 1.7. And you're really going  to want to upgrade to 1.7, when it becomes available. Trust me!

 2009/09/01 Snow Leopard!


See SCPlugin version 0.8.0 released - now, with Snow Leopard! , over in the Users discussion forum.

But still, no contextual menu or badging. 

2009/03/10 - Announcing Release 0.8.0 of SCPlugin!

I've just put up the final release of 0.8.0, in the usual place. This now supports Subversion 1.6.5, the same as comes with Snow Leopard. It's tested on MacOS X 10.5 and 10.6, and probably works on 10.4. It does not work (will not install) in 10.3.9 'Panther'. The last Panther release is 0.7.3q.

There is still no icon badging or Contextual Menu for Snow Leopard, only the ToolbarButton. Directions on installing the Button come inside the package.

About SCPlugin

The goal of the SCPlugin project is to integrate Subversion into the Mac OS X Finder. The inspiration for this project came from the TortoiseSVN project.

Current Features:

  • Support for Subversion.
  • Access to commonly used source control operations via contextual menu [screenshot]
  • Dynamic icon badging for files under version control. Shows the status of your files visually. [ screenshot ]
Possible Futures
  • a repository browser
  • PathFinder support


Bugs, Bugging, and the One True Bug

Just so we're clear: SCPlugin is still a work in progress. We, the developers, think it's quite useful already, and lots of folks in the user's list think so too, but there are loads of things left to do (see the Issues list, from the link above).

If you have trouble using it, or if you find a bug, we want to hear about it! The user's list is the first place to go, either by mail or on line. Maybe we already knew, maybe someone can help you out, maybe you'll just fine a congenial crowd of like-minded folks. How can you lose?

But if you've just noticed that the icon badging is somewhere between "inconsistent" and "totally busticated," be assured we know — everybody knows! Check this thread in the user's list for the best known way to work around the problem. If you've OS X programming skills (Cocoa and Carbon) and the time, we have some strong leads on how to fix this, but haven't yet put them to use: come join us in dev@, and maybe you can be the one to finish the job.

Welcome! Share and Enjoy!
