Integrasi dengan Pelihat Repositori Berbasis Web

Ada beberapa pelihat repositori berbasis web yang dapat digunakan bersama Subversion seperti ViewVC dan WebSVN. TortoiseSVN menyediakan sarana untuk menyambung dengan pelihat-pelihat tersebut.

You can integrate a repo viewer of your choice in TortoiseSVN. To do this, you have to define some properties which define the linkage. They must be set on Folders: (bagian bernama “Seting Proyek”)

webviewer:revision

Set this property to the URL of your repo viewer to view all changes in a specific revision. It must be properly URI encoded and it has to contain %REVISION%. %REVISION% is replaced with the revision number in question. This allows TortoiseSVN to display a context menu entry in the log dialog Context MenuView revision in webviewer.

webviewer:pathrevision

Set this property to the URL of your repo viewer to view changes to a specific file in a specific revision. It must be properly URI encoded and it has to contain %REVISION% and %PATH%. %PATH% is replaced with the path relative to the repository root. This allows TortoiseSVN to display a context menu entry in the log dialog Context MenuView revision for path in webviewer For example, if you right click in the log dialog bottom pane on a file entry /trunk/src/file then the %PATH% in the URL will be replaced with /trunk/src/file.

You can also use relative URLs instead of absolute ones. This is useful in case your web viewer is on the same domain/server as your source repository. In case the domain name ever changes, you don't have to adjust the webviewer:revision and webviewer:pathrevision property. The format is the same as for the bugtraq:url property. See bagian bernama “Integration with Bug Tracking Systems / Issue Trackers”.

Set Properti pada Folder

These properties must be set on folders for the system to work. When you commit a file or folder the properties are read from that folder. If the properties are not found there, TortoiseSVN will search upwards through the folder tree to find them until it comes to an unversioned folder, or the tree root (e.g. C:\) is found. If you can be sure that each user checks out only from e.g trunk/ and not some sub-folder, then it's enough if you set the properties on trunk/. If you can't be sure, you should set the properties recursively on each sub-folder. A property setting deeper in the project hierarchy overrides settings on higher levels (closer to trunk/).

For project properties only, i.e. tsvn:, bugtraq: and webviewer: you can use the Recursive checkbox to set the property to all sub-folders in the hierarchy, without also setting it on all files.

When you add new sub-folders to a working copy using TortoiseSVN, any project properties present in the parent folder will automatically be added to the new child folder too.

Limitations Using the Repository Browser

Because the repo viewer integration depends upon accessing Subversion properties, you will only see the results when using a checked out working copy. Fetching properties remotely is a slow operation, so you will not see this feature in action from the repo browser unless you started the repo browser from your working copy. If you started the repo browser by entering the URL of the repository you won't see this feature.

For the same reason, project properties will not be propagated automatically when a child folder is added using the repo browser.
