Saturday 5 February 2005 — This is more than 18 years old. Be careful.
I use Subversion to store my personal projects (including this web site), but every time I need to put a new project into Subversion, I have to look at my cheat sheet again. This time, I decided to write it down nicely and put it up here in case other people find it useful: Subversion on Windows quick start.
And if you are using Subversion on Windows, please, do yourself a favor. Go get the exquisite Beyond Compare diff program, and set it up to be the default diff program for Subversion.
I'm using their GUI to create & manage repositories, much easier. Plus, it also has it's own (easy) cmdline interface, which allows to write simple checkin-checkout scripts with it's own GUI support, so overall I like it more than the raw SVN cmd interface for most of the things I do with sVN...
Moreover, I didn't know it had a CLI of its own, which I shall be investigating as soon as I get back to work!
