Random DevTools Entry: #006
Hey now, this looks sharp!
I have to say, I’ve taken a long look at Bugzilla and the thing that turned me off (I know, it’s rather shallow of me) is the sub-par interface. I guess it was designed to be highly portable across browsers and platforms. But damn, it looks like they didn’t even bother making it a bit more attractive.
The TracBrowser feature is great too! Code browser, HTML diff viewer, and all hooked into Subversion. Incredibly awesome.
Maybe it’s a good time and incentive to learn some Python?
Random link: some Python IDEs reviewed.
(Random) Update: I spent some time whipping together a nifty little Subversion _svn directory cleanup script 😀 It’s great. Simply download the file or copy the contents into a new .vbs file.
I’ve been meaning to do this for quite a while. It’s written in VBScript and based off of another script (which, for the life of me, I cannot remember where the original source is from). You will need to have Windows Script Host installed (I believe) to be able to run this script. Simply place it in the root directory of your project and it will remove all “_svn” directories in the context directory (directory you placed it in) and recursively into the sub-directories as well.
There is one confirmation dialog that allows you to change your mind and cancel the deletion if you double click it by accident.
Just the thing you need when zipping up and sending a project to someone without a Subversion client installed.
