EasyMercurial is a user interface for the Mercurial distributed
version control system.

EasyMercurial is intended to be:

 * simple to teach and to learn
 * indicative of repository state using a history graph representation
 * recognisably close to normal command-line workflow for Mercurial
 * consistent across platforms

We are not trying to produce "the best" Mercurial client for any one
purpose. We actively encourage users to move on to other clients as
their needs evolve. The aim is simply to provide something accessible
for beginners in small project groups working with a shared remote

The application is developed by Chris Cannam for SoundSoftware.ac.uk,
based on the HgExplorer application by Jari Korhonen, and is published
under the GPL.  See the file COPYING for license details.

Building EasyMercurial

EasyMercurial is written in C++ using the Qt5 toolkit.  On most
platforms, you can build it by running "qmake" followed by "make".

To run EasyMercurial

Just run the EasyMercurial application that is produced by the build.
You will also need to have Mercurial installed (version 1.7 or newer).
If you want to use the EasyHg authentication extension, you will also
need PyQt5 (the Python bindings for Qt5); you may also wish to install
the python-crypto library for the password store.  Finally, an
external diff/merge utility is required, typically kdiff3.
