Filer is an in-development version control system.

Project Description

A prototype is available at It has init, log, commit, and local push support.

A release will be posted to PyPI once merge and remote push are complete; I expect this to be sometime between September and December of 2012. (It’s August 2012 as of this writing.)

Filer is quite good at delta compression; a sample repository that’s 240KB in Mercurial is around 100KB in Filer.
