Common Version Control Operations

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Integrated Version Control »

Some operations are similar across all the supported version control systems. While there are some minor variations among these, the basic idea is the same and they perform within Wing in the same way as they would on the command line.

Commit copies changes in the local file system to the version control repository that the files are associated with. The repository might be entirely local in distributed systems such as Git or Mercurial, or it may be on a remote host in centralized systems such as Subversion and CVS.

The view shown for a commit operation has a several tabs that contain the commit message, the diffs for this commit, the list of files eligible for the commit, and the results once the commit is run. The Files tab may be used to select files for the commit by un-checking files that should not be committed.

Diff displays the differences between files on the local file system and files in the repository. The diff appears as a view in the revision control tool. Its right-click context menu may be used to copy the diff text, go to the source for a particular section of the diff, or re-run the diff command.

Status displays the status of files. The files are displayed as a tree by default, but may also be displayed as a flat list by right-clicking and selecting View as List. To the left of the file name, there is an icon to indicate if the file has been modified (or added or removed), has a conflict, is locked, or is not registered. Unregistered files are omitted from the status view by default but can be shown by right-clicking on the tool and selecting Show Unregistered.

Log displays a list of all the revisions, with commit comments, for one or more files or directories.

Revert disposes of any local changes and reverts the local files to match the revision that they were based on in the repository.

Commit Project runs the commit operation against all the files in the project.

Project Status runs the status operation against all the files in the project.

Add marks a file or directory to be added to the repository with the next commit.

Remove requests that a file or directory be removed from the repository with the next commit.
