The aim is to provide a quick method to commit simple changes without leaving Sublime Text 2. To this end the only subversion commands that are supported are:
- 'status', to check what files have been modified
- 'update', to get the latest version of a file
- 'add', to add new files to the commit
- 'commit', to commit changes with a brief message
Committing will show you a colorized diff of your changes, and allow you to enter a single line of text for the commit message.
NOTE: The commands 'status' and 'update' run at the FOLDER level of the current file, but 'add' and 'commit' only operate upon the current file.
- In Sublime Text 2, select Preferences > Browse Packages. A finder/explorer instance will open to "Packages". Open the "User" subfolder.
Sublime Text 2/Packages/Userfolder that you opened in the previous step.
- You may need to restart ST2 so that it will compile the .py file to a .pyc file.
- All commands are accessed via keyboard shortcuts, which you can view/change by opening
- A subversion command line client (not tortoise) installed and in your
path(i.e., you can type
svn -hin a command window and it lists the svn commands).
Very occasionally Sublime Text 2 will freeze when generating the diff. Killing the svn process (
ps -A | grep svn, note the process id of svn (not grep!), and
kill -9 THE_PROCESS_ID#) will bring Sublime Text 2 back to life.
