hg site

Create and/or upload a static copy of the repository.

You can get it via `hg clone`

The main goal is sharing Mercurial on servers with only FTP access and
statically served files, while providing the same information as hg
serve and full solutions like bitbucket and gitorious (naturally
without the interactivity).

Only changed files are uploaded, based on the time they were last
modified, so uploads can be reasonably fast.


* Clone this repo.
  hg clone
* add this to the [extensions] section in your ~/.hgrc
  site = path/to/
  if you have no [extensions] section, add it.


$ hg site [-n sitename] -u
→ that’s how this site gets created.

To upload the site when you push, you can use a hook in .hg/hgrc. This is what I use: 

    post-push = hg site -n site -u

$ hg site --help
hg site [options] [folder]

Create a static copy of the repository and/or upload it to an FTP server.
