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, and on the command line.
- pygtk >= 2.12
- python-configobj >= 4.4.0
- python-gobject >= 2.14
- python-simplejson >= 2.1.1
For spell checking of commit messages:
- python-svn >= 1.7.2
- subversion >= 1.4.6
- dulwich >= 0.9.7
- tkinter (for now)
- meld (graphical diff tool)
For Debian-based distros you can run:
# apt-get install python-gtk2 python-configobj python-gobject python-simplejson python-gtkspell python-svn subversion python-dulwich git meld tkinter
For Fedora-based distros you can run:
# dnf install nautilus-python pysvn python-configobj python-devel dbus-python python-dulwich tkinter subversion meld
Note that you will require superuser rights in order to install RabbitVCS. Execute the following as root or using sudo:
# python setup.py install
On Ubuntu or Debian-based distros, instead run:
# python setup.py 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 not work because pygtk is not available outside of Python2.
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
