Ruby API for Mercurial DVCS. Powers Mercurial on beanstalkapp.com
Please refer to YARD documentation here:
Github doesn't support some YARd-specific syntax so this README can look broken.
gem install mercurial-ruby
Tested with Mercurial versions 1.9, 1.9.1, 2.1, 2.5.2; Ruby versions 1.8.7, 1.9.3 and 2.0.0.
There are several settings you can configure:
Mercurial.configure do |conf| conf.hg_binary_path = "/usr/bin/hg" end
Seeclass for details.
All actions are performed throughobject. So before you can start doing anything you need to initialize one. Either by creating a new repository:
repository = Mercurial::Repository.create("/path/to/new_repository")
or opening an existing one:
repository = Mercurial::Repository.open("/path/to/existing_repository")
Now feel free to invoke various methods to get changesets, branches, nodes, etc:
repository.commits.by_hash_ids('291a498f04e9', '63f70b2314ed') repository.branches.all repository.hooks.by_name('commit') ...
See Features section below for a full list of entities and their methods.
— hooks and various settings
— files and directories
You can useclass to execute custom shell commands that weren't added to the gem as first-class citizens yet.
There's a simple caching mechanism built into the gem. If you pass Rails CacheStore-compatible caching store to the Configuration block, mercurial-ruby will cache output of all hg commands it's executing. Then if you execute same method again and it will run the same command, the gem will return the output from cache.
Here's how you configure it:
Mercurial.configure do |conf| conf.cache_store = Rails.cache end
The gem is using a single method of the CacheStore called fetch. Cache expires automatically when repository's mtime changes, and it's your job to update it.
You can provide a timeout for pretty much any command you are running. Do it like this:
repository.commits.all(:timeout => 5)
