Subversion Tips

Here’s a few tips that I’ve discovered to ease working with Subversion.

Long URLs

Tired of those long URLs, like svn+ssh:// Use a shell alias, function or shell script which simply prints the URL. e.g.

echo "svn+ssh://$@"

Save the shell script as, say, FooSVN. Now, instead of typing those long URLs on the commandline, you can just write svn co `FooSVN trunk` instead.
