HgDelivery is an easy way to deliver products for Mercurial and Git with a built in push/pull server, as well as repositories comparison

Project description

A one-click deployment tool written in python with pyramid web framework

current release : v_1_1_0

Global overview

hg_delivery is a web application who aims to simplify the delivery of small projects and helping people to quickly revert to a previous stable release if something’s wrong. This project targets people bothered by command line, looking for a nice and simple web interface, able to manage multiple remote repositories.

inspired from :

Manage Kombu

In order to close unused SSH connexion by checking them each configured interval, you need to install the right broker and setup the right kombu url. hg_delivery will check each 15 minutes if there’s unused connexion that needs to be closed.
