NodeJS SVN bindings

This module is SVN bindings for NodeJS. You can use this module to interact with SVN within your NodeJS project.


Installation of this module is simple. In the root directory

node-waf configure build install


Filesystem File Contents

To get the contents of a file directly from the Subversion filesystem (using svn_fs):

SVN = require('nodesvn').SVN;
client = new SVN();'/path/to/svn/filesystem')
file_contents = client.file_contents('path_to_file_in_filesystem')

cat file

To get the contents of the file, as you might if you don't have direct access to the file system (e.g. through your SVN client on your OS, using svn_ra) use cat

SVN = require('nodesvn').SVN
client = new SVN();'type://path/to/repository/file')
