Readme

hg site: static repositories

Get it via hg clone http://draketo.de/proj/hgsite/

With hg site you can say goodbye to vendor lock-in.

Mission Statement

The goal of hg site is to enable convenient sharing of code over commodity servers which only offer FTP access and statically served files, while providing the same information as hg serve and full solutions like bitbucket and gitorious (naturally without the interactivity, but you can always clone the repo to interact).

Installation

  • Clone this repo.
    hg clone http://draketo.de/proj/hgsite/
  • add this to the [extensions] section in your ~/.hgrc
    site = path/to/staticsite.py
    if you have no such section, just add a line with content [extensions]. The extensions-section is below that line.

Usage

Create and Upload your Site: hg push [-f] --sitename "sitename" ftps://user:password@ftp.host.tld/path/to/dir

That’s how this site gets created. With -f it is reuploaded completely, otherwise only the changes get uploaded.

If you want to make this more convenient, add the following path and alias to your .hg/hgrc:

[paths]
ftp = ftps://user:password@ftp.host.tld/path/to/dir
[alias]
pushsite = push --sitename "sitename" ftp

Then just use hg pushsite to upload.

Features

  • shows the history, branches, tags and bookmarks.
  • shows bugs tracked via the b-extension.
  • shows the readme.
  • shows forks which are defined as paths in .hg/hgrc - from any source hg supports.
  • uploads only hanged files (based on the time they were last modified), so uploads can be reasonably fast.
  • Supports FTP and FTPS. Use the latter if you can (just use URLs starting with ftps://).
  • static site (no vulnerabilities, little dependencies, high performance).

Thanks to the static http support of Mercurial, the clone and browse URLs are the same, so you can look at the site with your webbrowser or clone the repository with Mercurial using the same URL.

The fork detection allows tieing multiple platforms together: It tracks repositories from any source for which Mercurial can calculate incoming and outgoing changes. And since the bugtracking happens via the b-extension, your bugtracking follows your code wherever you go.

Basic Options

$ hg site --help
hg site [options] [folder]

Create a static copy of the repository and/or upload it to an FTP server.

use "hg help -e site" to show help for the site extension

options:

 -n --name VALUE         the repo name. Default: folder or last segment of the
                         repo-path.
 -u --upload VALUE       upload the repo to the given ftp host. Format:
                         user:password@host/path/to/dir
 -f --force              force recreating all commit files. Slow.
 -s --screenstyle VALUE  use a custom stylesheet for display on screen
 -p --printstyle VALUE   use a custom stylesheet for printing
    --mq                 operate on patch repository

use "hg -v help site" to show global options

Customization

To change the appearance of your site, create it once and then copy style.css and print.css from ._site/. Adapt them and use -s path/to/your/screen.css and -p path/to/your/print.css to use your adaptions.
