A utility that provides .svnignore functionality similar to GIT
A utility that provides .svnignore functionality similar to GIT.
Lets face it, the svn:ignore property is pretty poor in comparison to GIT, it does not update itself when you add new files, exceptions are not possible, and it cannot be specified in a single file. That’s exactly why this utility exists
Features that this utility provides: - A .svnignore file that lets you specify which files should be ignored - The possibility to add exceptions(Lines starting with !) to the SVN Ignore file - Updating the svn:ignore property every time you add new files
Make sure that you have SVN installed before you run SVN-Ignore, as it requires the svn command.
To install SVN-Ignore, simply run: pip install svn-ingore. After that you can run svn-ignore on any directory
Simply calling svn-ignore [directory] will run the utility. If the directory is left empty, it will use the working directory.
- --no-recursive: Do not apply the .svnignore file to any of the children of the current directory
- --overwrite: Overwrite existing svn:ignore properties.
- --ignore-file <file>: The file to look for. Default is .svnigore
- --verbose: Display verbose information
- --help: Display this information
Because of the way that the svn:ignore property works, this script only applies the contents of .svnigore to files that exist at the time of running. To make sure that the file also applies to newly added files, the command needs to be rerun. An easy way to do this is with a hook.
On the Client
Linux (Bash alias)
The correct way to do this is by using a Bash alias. Create a file somewhere with these contents:
#!/bin/bash if [ $1 = 'commit' ]; then svn-ignore fi /usr/bin/svn $@ if [ $1 = 'add' ]; then svn-ignore fi
Make sure to call chmod +x FILENAME afterwards. After that you just need to add the following line to ~/.bashrc: alias svn="/path/to/this/file $@". This hook is both for pre-commit and post-add (A hook you normally won’t find).
TortoiseSVN offers a simple way to add pre-commit hooks client side. Simply add svn-ignore as a Pre-Commit Hook in Tortoise-SVN.
On the Repository
This is currently not possible and is planned in a future version
You can run the tests by calling python -m unittest discover in the project root. Subversion 1.9 is required for running the tests. Automatic testing is done by Travis CI. ## License
