RabbitVCS is a set of graphical tools written to provide simple and straightforward access to the version control systems you use. We currently support Subversion and Git on a variety of clients such as Nautilus, Thunar, Nemo, Caja, PCManFM-Qt and on the command line.

System Requirements

  • gtk >= 3.0
  • python-configobj >= 4.4.0
  • python-gobject >= 2.14

For subversion:

  • python-svn >= 1.7.2
  • subversion >= 1.4.6

For git:

  • dulwich >= 0.19.0
  • git
  • tkinter (for now, newer versions of ubuntu this is called python-tk)

For spell checking of commit messages (optional):

  • python-gtkspell (newer versions of ubuntu, this is called python-gtkspellcheck)
  • hunspell langpacks

For syntax highlighting (optional):

  • python-pygments


  • meld (graphical diff tool)

For Debian-based distros you can run:

# apt-get install python3-configobj python3-gtkspellcheck python3-svn subversion python3-dulwich python3-pygments git meld python3-tk

For Fedora-based distros you can run:

# dnf install python[23]-nautilus python[23]-pysvn python[23]-configobj python[23]-dbus python[23]-dulwich python[23]-tkinter python[23]-gtkspell3 python[23]-pygments subversion git meld

Manual Installation

Note that you will require superuser rights in order to install RabbitVCS. Execute the following as root or using sudo:

# python install

On Ubuntu or Debian-based distros, instead run:

# python install --install-layout=deb

Once this is run, make sure you install one or more client below.


Please note that if there is a PYTHON environment variable it will be used as a Runtime environtment for the rabbitvcs module. For example, if PYTHON points to Python3, then the code in the rabbitvcs module will should be located in the Python 3 module search path.


RabbitVCS is the core library and set of dialogs, but you interact with them through our clients. Each client needs to be purposefully installed and has its own README. Here is a list of our currently working clients:

We have some others as well that are either incomplete, experimental or non-working. Check them out!


To upgrade an existing version manually, copy the contents of the repository to the rabbitvcs lib folder. Most likely it is located at /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/rabbitvcs. In case of Debian-based distros this is will be /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rabbitvcs. For Fedora-based distros on 64-bit make sure to check /usr/lib64.
