Source control

Openbravo Forge allows to use a version control system to manage your projects' code.

Openbravo Forge provides Subversion as source control system, to easy the collaborative development of extensions.

Create the repository

A repository is where Subversion stores a copy of the files of the project. The server retains both the most recent version and every historical version (past changes).

To create a repository for project, go to the administration panel (admin tab) to activate the Code artifact.

Assign roles and members

After creating the repository only project developers or owners can commit to the repository (everyone can checkout the repository in read-only mode).

To setup who can commit to the repository edit the project user and roles.

View commits

More repositories

Openbravo Forge allows to have as much repositories as needed with the only restriction that only one repository can be local, all other repositories have to be remote.

To create a new repository:

Edit and delete

To edit or delete a repository go to the code tab, select the repository you wish to edit/delete and press the desired button.

Checkout

See the code tab to know how to checkout a project code, either as anonymous or as an identified developer. Note that only developers with write access will be available to commit to the repositories.
