Ever wanted to use SVN to grab code from GitHub? Well, now you can, and just like that GitHub is the world's biggest Subversion host. Here's a few things you might like to do with it:
- Use any GitHub repository as an SVN external.
- Use TortoiseSVN or your favorite SVN tool to view Git repositories.
- Use existing build tools or continuous integrations systems that only work with SVN.
How's it work? Just checkout your project from svn.github.com:
svn checkout http://svn.github.com/schacon/simplegit.git
Give it a shot! For now it's only read-only, but who knows what will happen in the future!
Update: I'd just like to reiterate that even though we had some fun with the timing of this announcement that it ACTUALLY WORKS!
Update: Subversion support has been upgraded. Projects should be checked out from github.com rather than svn.github.com:
svn checkout https://github.com/schacon/kidgloves
