Subversion Repository Index Page

Back when I was working on my FRC robotics team’s website, I wrote a simple page to display all of the subversion repositories related to my team. Realizing that there were no existing simple subversion repository index page generators, I decided to make one with human readable code and post it here.

See it in action!   http://svn.jperr.com

Download svnindex.py

The code was developed and tested using Python2.6, but I see no reason why it shouldn’t work in Python3.0. Likewise, I’ve developed and tested this using UNIX based machines (Mac 10.6 and Debian Linux), but it should work under Windows. The script requires the command line “svn” client to be installed and accessible by the user under which Python runs, and you must have the standard python “time” and “commands” modules installed. 99.9% of Python installations will have them pre-installed.

All you need to do to get svnindex.py running on your site:

  • Download svnindex.py (link above)
  • Modify the settings at the top of the file
  • Set up a daily cronjob to run the generation script. Something like `python /path/to/svnindex.py` works just fine.
