ViewSVN Prematurely EOL’d

Posted on August 25, 2007 at 23:31 UTC, filed under the category ViewSVN.

ViewSVN has been end-of-life’d and I will no longer be developing it. This is due simply to the fact that as of noon PDT today, went offline (and thus my Subversion repository host). In preparation for this, I’ve moved almost all my projects to Git repositories (which do not require any special server to host).

So ViewSVN never made it out of the beta phase, which is a shame because I feel it had a lot of potential. I’ll be converting the repository from SVN to Git (so that the repository history is accessible and open for forking if people desire to do so) and uploading it shortly. However, as I said above, active development of ViewSVN has ceased and will likely not continue, especially with how content with Git I am.

Yes, git is extremely easy to set up. It can compile incredibly quickly, even on shared hosting. The only thing is that git works slightly differently than SVN so it may take some getting used to.

Okay well i need some more info on git so do you have msn or some thing??

and also you could make viewsvn to viewgit that would be so cool.

No problem. I have instant messsagning, but I’m never on because I’m almost always away from my computer. You can contact me and then we can start an email converstaion and you can go ahead and ask questions that way.

As for making ViewGit, there’s already a built-in web client for git repisotires called gitweb. You can view my gitweb here:
