Command line tools for use with Review Board

Project Description
About RBTools

RBTools is a set of command line tools and a rich Python API for use with
[Review Board](

These tools make it easy to post changes for review, keep them up-to-date,
land reviewed changes, and test other people's changes in your own tree,
check your workload, and much more.

When using RBTools, you'll do most everything through the
[rbt]( command,
which supports a number of
like [post](,
and [patch](

Installing RBTools

We provide native installers for Windows and MacOS, along with Python
packages for Linux and other platforms. See the
[RBTools Downloads]( page
for downloads and installation instructions.

See the
[RBTools documentation]( for
more information.

Using the Python API

The included Python API can be used to write scripts and applications that
interface with Review Board, and can also be used to write new commands
for RBTools.

There's very little that you can't do with the Python API. To learn more,
see the
[RBTools Python API documentation](
and the [Review Board API documentation](

Getting Support

We can help you get going with Review Board and RBTools, and diagnose any
issues that may come up. There are two levels of support: Public community
support, and private premium support.

The public community support is available on our main
[discussion list]( We generally
respond to requests within a couple of days. This support works well for
general, non-urgent questions that don't need to expose confidential

We can also provide more
[dedicated, private support]( for
your organization through a support contract. We offer same-day responses
(generally within a few hours, if not sooner), confidential communications,
installation/upgrade assistance, emergency database repair, phone/chat (by
appointment), priority fixes for urgent bugs, and backports of urgent fixes to
older releases (when possible).

### Testing RBTools

If you're writing patches for RBTools, you'll need to know how to run our
test suite.

First, make sure you have the necessary dependencies.

To run all the tests, you will need to install hgsubversion:

$ easy_install hgsubversion

This may need apr-config, also known as apr-1-config, to run. This is
part of the apache distribution. On ubuntu, you can get it via:

$ sudo apt-get install libapr1-dev # also try apache2-dev or httpd-dev

hgsubversion also requires that you set up an :file:`.hgrc` in your home
directory with the following contents:

hgsvn = /path/to/hgsubversion

This will be something like
`/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/hgsubversion`. If you already have an
`[extensions]` section in your `.hgrc`, just add the hgsvn line to it.

You will also need nose:

$ easy_install nose

#### Running the Tests

Running the test suite is easy. Simply run:

$ nosetests -v

from the top of the `rbtools` directory. You can also run a particular
set of tests. For instance:

$ nosetests -v rbtools.api.tests

See `'nosetests --help'` for more options.
