Automatic svn changeset integration?

Hi AR team,

Thanks for your great product, I'm discovering new parts everyday, it's fun to play with :)

I've just set the svn integration on our project, and I'd like to know if someone has already found a solution to make it automatic after each commit.

Solutions in mind: - a cron job that parse svn log once in a while; - extend textmate svn plugin, that'll run the ruby script on svn server after each commit (not really multi-platfom compatible).

Have fun :)

    You can use subversion with a post-commit hook (or a git post-receive hook, or any other scm, lighthouse doesn't specifically support any of them).

    I'm not sure extending the textmate plugin is a great idea since it requires every user on your team to do the same setup.

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks, I didn't understand that the script needed to be renamed as svn-dir/hooks/post-commit.rb

    Hope it will work now :)

    It might need to be named svn-dir/hooks/post-commit, with a proper shebang to ruby and executable permissions.

    p. #!/usr/bin/ruby. Type 'which ruby' to see what the path on your system is.

    p. $ chmod +x svn-dir/hooks/post-commit

    Cool, working great now :)

    The only problem was with SVNLOOK variable that was not set correctly, I had to set it without using 'which' command.
