hg-review is still beta! Things may break!


hg-review requires Mercurial 1.6+ and Python 2.5+. It requires a few other things too, but they're bundled with the extension so you don't need to worry about them.

First, get hg-review:

hg clone

Then add it to your ~/.hgrc:

review = [path to]/hg-review/review/

You're all set.

Try It

hg-review uses itself for code review. If you want to get a quick taste of how it works:

cd path/to/wherever/you/cloned/hg-review
hg review --init
hg review --web

Now visit http://localhost:8080/ and have fun. Use ^C to kill the server when you're done.

There's also a live, read-only demo if installing is too much committment for you.
