From ProgClub
Jump to: navigation, search

Pcview is the ProgClub web-based subversion viewing software. That's the software that allows users to view pcrepo. It's a fork of ViewVC 1.0.12 with some minor improvements to the HTML templates (the ProgClub logo, and links to the svn repositories). For other projects see Projects.

Notes for implementers

If you are interested in incorporating ProgClub's Pcview into your project, here's what you need to know:

You're probably not really going to be interested in our fork. We didn't add anything! Your best bet is to go to the upstream source for a copy of the project's distribution: www.viewvc.org. If you want to know how we modified our templates for the few features that we did add, your best bet is to copy the relevant bits from pcrepo.

Releasing Pcview at ProgClub

To do a pcview release on charity, run

$ /home/jj5/bin/release-pcview "Release notes..."

After registering the release in svn this will update the pcview-dev and pcview working copies in /var/www and it will install ViewVC in /usr/local/viewvc-1.0.12. The installer has been modified so as to not create a config file (one should already exist) and to blow away any mods to the templates (don't modify templates in /usr/local/viewvc-1.0.12 -- instead modify them in subversion and then do a release). The pcview-dev setup isn't really being used at the moment, if we ever do anything more sophisticated I'll configure it for use.
