Pylons based replacement for hgwebdir

Fully customizable, with authentication, permissions. Based on vcs library.


  • has it's own middleware to handle mercurial protocol request each request can be logged and authenticated + threaded performance unlikely to hgweb
  • full permissions per project read/write/admin access even on mercurial request
  • mako templates let's you cusmotize look and feel of appplication.
  • diffs annotations and source code all colored by pygments.
  • mercurial branch graph
  • admin interface for performing user/permission managments as well as repository managment. Additionall settings for mercurial web, (hooks editable from admin panel !)
  • backup scripts can do backup of whole app and send it over scp to desired location
  • setup project descriptions and info inside built in db for easy, non file-system operations
  • added cache with invalidation on push/repo managment for high performance and always upto date data.
  • rss /atom feed customizable
  • based on pylons 1.0 / sqlalchemy 0.6


  • code review based on hg-review (when it's stable)
  • git support (when vcs can handle it)
  • other cools stuff that i can figure out
  • manage hg ui() per repo, add hooks settings, per repo, and not globally


This software is still in beta mode. I don't guarantee that it'll work.



I recomend to install tip version of vcs while the app is in beta mode.

  • create new virtualenv and activate it - highly recommend that you use separate virtual-env for whole application
  • download hg app from default (not demo) branch from bitbucket and run 'python setup.py install' this will install all required dependencies needed
  • run paster setup-app production.ini it should create all needed tables and an admin account.
  • remember that the given path for mercurial repositories must be write accessible for the application
  • run paster serve development.ini - or you can use manage-hg_app script. the app should be available at the
  • use admin account you created to login.
  • default permissions on each repository is read, and owner is admin. So remember to update those.
