Welcome to RhodeCode (RhodiumCode) documentation!
RhodeCode (formerly hg-app) is a Pylons framework based Mercurial repository browser/management tool with a built in push/pull server and full text search. It works on http/https and has a built in permission/authentication system with the ability to authenticate via LDAP.
RhodeCode is similar in some respects to github or bitbucket, however RhodeCode can be run as standalone hosted application on your own server. It is open source and donation ware and focuses more on providing a customized, self administered interface for Mercurial(and soon GIT) repositories. RhodeCode is powered by a vcs library that Lukasz Balcerzak and I created to handle multiple different version control systems.
RhodeCode uses Semantic Versioning
The default access is anonymous but you can login to an administrative account using the following credentials:
- username: demo
- password: demo
The latest source for RhodeCode can be obtained from official RhodeCode instance https://hg.rhodecode.org
Rarely updated source code and issue tracker is available at bitbucket http://bitbucket.org/marcinkuzminski/rhodecode
- Has it's own middleware to handle mercurial protocol requests. Each request can be logged and authenticated.
- Runs on threads unlike hgweb. You can make multiple pulls/pushes simultaneous. Supports http/https and LDAP
- Full permissions (private/read/write/admin) and authentication per project. One account for web interface and mercurial push/pull/clone operations.
- Mako templates let's you customize the look and feel of the application.
- Beautiful diffs, annotations and source code browsing all colored by pygments.
- Mercurial branch graph and yui-flot powered graphs with zooming and statistics
- Admin interface with user/permission management. Admin activity journal, logs pulls, pushes, forks, registrations and other actions made by all users.
- Server side forks. It is possible to fork a project and modify it freely without breaking the main repository.
- Full text search powered by Whoosh on the source files, and file names. Build in indexing daemons, with optional incremental index build (no external search servers required all in one application)
- Setup project descriptions and info inside built in db for easy, non file-system operations
- Intelligent cache with invalidation after push or project change, provides high performance and always up to date data.
- Rss / atom feeds, gravatar support, download sources as zip/tar/gz
- Async tasks for speed and performance using celery (works without them too)
- Backup scripts can do backup of whole app and send it over scp to desired location
- Based on pylons / sqlalchemy / sqlite / whoosh / vcs
Incoming / Plans
- Project grouping
- User groups/teams
- SSH based authentication with server side key management
- Code review (probably based on hg-review)
- Full git support, with push/pull server (currently in beta tests)
- Redmine integration
- Public accessible activity feeds
- Commit based built in wiki system
- Clone points and cloning from remote repositories into RhodeCode
- More statistics and graph (global annotation + some more statistics)
- Other advancements as development continues (or you can of course make additions and or requests)
RhodeCode is released under the GPL license.
