Feb 24, Joel Spolsky has put together an extensive Mercurial tutorial with lots of examples and a humorous approach. “Finally, if you haven’t collapsed. Feb 24, If this is advertising, I want more of it. As an SVN curmudgeon, the first part of this tutorial finally persuaded me that I really, really need to give.

The killer app for version control isn’t the server, it’s the client. It will only have the.

He said he spends ten times more time on building than on managing revision control. TortoiseHg is a set of graphical applications and Windows Explorer shell extension that serve as a friendly front-end to the Mercurial distributed version control system DVCS. Git still doesn’t work well on windows and it’s damn slow and only 2 years old, also running it with cygwin was a pain because you had to install it manually tutoriql stuff.

If you don’t need those things, then by all means, use the open source version. Version control doesn’t even emrcurial close to hitting the top of that list.

A lot will transfer over; some won’t. Tuforial msysgit runs okay on Windows as of fairly recently, for a very long time, Git had very bad performance on Windows, and required Cygwin.

I recently had to try TortoiseGit for another team member who is not so fluent in the command line and I think that it is a horrible abomination. You can traverse the directories to find specific changes and commit them from Explorer. But I had an option: Ibit have been using Git for years and I like to think I know its ins and out; yet, I couldn’t figure out how to do simple things with TortoiseGit.

When you do consciously branch it’s a quicker, more robust operation. Nobody would notice except people that had an agenda against git hg supporters, svn etc. This will prevent people from messing around with rebasing. Maybe I should just go with the Mercruial flow so here it goes: This seems quite plausible to me, but it’s orthogonal to the problem of merge tracking isn’t it?

There’s just less information to merge intelligently. To be honest, having upstream devs who care about the cross-platform titorial is enough to make hg a clear win for me compared to having a secondary port for Windows.

Quick Start

Quiark on Feb 24, You have to write your own extensions to copy bookmarks files around automatically or just do it manually. There is very little that is hard with managing your source code on your local workstation. It’s all there, it’s just harder to recognize. Doing big scary feature branch merges isn’t as scary since they’re happening privately before you push back to the culturally defined central repo.

Kiln gets you a pretty cool if I do say so myself code review system, an all-new web interface for managing your code and repositories, tight integration with FogBugz, and support from Fog Creek. Mercurial makes collaboration easy, fast, and productive.

However, most of those edits are to distinctly different parts of the shared files, and are automatically merged without human intervention, only a tiny handful of merges require manual intervention, a process that takes only a tiny number of people a few minutes to sort out.

Both were created by kernel hackers for the kernel in April of I have seen a number of people saying that the merge tracking in subversion still isn’t as good as what’s in git or mercurial, but I haven’t found an explanation of the difference.

It is dangerous to manually edit the files in. Otherwise, select your favorite visual diff tool from the drop down list of detected visual diff tools.

You will have the chance later to override these global settings with repository local settings, if required.


After pressing CreateMercurial creates a subdirectory in your project folder named. I spend at least an order of magnitude, if not several, more time with each of those things than I do with a goddamn version control utility.

You’re just using the honor system, basically. We are talking about programming tools here. Rebasing is an essential activity when maintaining your local repository, but it can also be confusing to non-technical people. Later team B merges their changes to main as well.

Yes, I agree that unnecessary hard work shouldn’t be needed. Not entirely — with git-svn you can use git locally while working with a subversion repository. When you merge in Mercurial it’s able to trace through the revision history of a file in the source and target branches, find the common revision, then separately apply the diffs merxurial the source and target branches We negotiated a little bit back and forth, but at the end of the day, as you can mfrcurial, the dodo happily agreed.

The only thing that’s really dead is subversion and CVS. You want to start collaborating with your team.

How about ‘hg push -f’ or ‘bzr push –overwrite’? That’s why you should care.

As I mentioned earlier, I find Git excellent for development perhaps the best VCS there isbut too complex for non-developers and actually for many developers too. I don’t think anyone’s said that, or tried to say it least of all meat any point. The branching is free. Doing ‘hg push -f’ will, at worst, create a new head alongside the existing ones. The footnote from Google’s article[1] on choosing between Mercurial and git states that Hg was faster both over HTTP and when compared to git’s wire protocol.

So you are obviously wrong. It happens all the time and you never notice it.
