Xcode4 with Mercurial
Xcode4 only support Git and does not provide plugin api. This script is a radical solution to bring Mercurial support into Xcode4
1/ get git.py
wget https://bitbucket.org/hsivank/xcode4-with-mercurial/get/tip.zip --no-check-certificate
2/ you will need to find current Git binary used by Xcode 4 into your system
( be careful more than one Git could be installed on your system )-:
Depending of Xcode4 version, it could be :
/Developer/usr/bin/git <- this is the one for default Xcode 4 installation
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/git ( Xcode >= 4.3) ...
3/ move git binary
sudo cp /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/git \ /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/git.orig
New: use the name git.orig in the same directory, so that the script can revert to git when it's an actual git repository.
4/ customize git.py
You should modify first line of git.py with your python interpreter path (the one returned by "head `which hg`" is probably a good bet)
> head `which hg` #!/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python # # mercurial - scalable distributed SCM # # Copyright 2005-2007 Matt Mackall <firstname.lastname@example.org> # # This software may be used and distributed according to the terms of the # GNU General Public License version 2 or any later version.
5/ copy hacked git.py
sudo cp git.py /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/git sudo chmod +x /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/git
That's all ! you should be able to clone your preferred reposit from bitbucket.org with Xcode4 Organizer ;-)
Xcode4 will use our git binary as usual ... except that mercurial will be used as backend
Note : if you got previous Mercurial reposit just create an empty .git folder at reposit root before Xcode4 import.
If you find a bug, uncomment this lignes in git.py
#f = open('/Users/user/git.txt', 'a') #f.write(' '.join(sys.argv)) #f.write('\n') #f.close()
and fill a ticket with /git.txt ( https://bitbucket.org/hsivank/xcode4-with-mercurial/issues/new )
