Up until this day when my friend Gabe told me how, I didn’t know how to import a folder, without doing this first:
svn mkdir svn+ssh://server.com/path/to/repo/myfolder svn import myFolder svn+ssh://server.com/path/to/repo/myfolder
If I didn’t do that, If I just imported the local “myFolder”, it would end up adding all the files inside the folder and it would not create the “myFolder” inside the repository, creating a total mess.
Here’s what you do
Forget everything you know about copying folders on the command line, and do this:
- cd INTO de Local Folder you want to import as a new folder in your repository
- svn import REMOTE_SVN_PATH/nameOfYouLocalFolder
This will create that folder as needed on the SVN repository and import all the files and folders of the folder where you’re standing.
Here’s an example:
gubatrons-macbook-pro:~/workspace/ cd arcturus-jython-console gubatrons-macbook-pro:~/workspace/arcturus-jython-console gubatron$ svn import svn+ssh://gubatron@myserver/usr/local/svn/repos/labs/arcturus-jython-console -m "A Jython console to test arcturus core object on the fly" Adding Main.java Adding lib Adding (bin) lib/jython.jar Committed revision 7409
If you svn ls the repo, you’ll see the new folder “arcturus-jython-console” is there (for this example)Did this help you? Tip $1 Tip $2 Tip $5
